A little background...Meet the Pianists
Documentation of a journey into learning how to listen.... For this project, I met with 9 Pianists in New York and drew the distance between their hands as they played Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. Each positive line represents one of the pianists. There are Ten lines (one being my line, created by listening to a recording by ear) that make up the landscape of the mural. At each meeting, I set up a space where I could see the pianist's hands and I drew (like a blind contour) onto roll paper. In preparation, I drew staff lines on the paper so that the lines could show how they moved up and down along the keys.
