Life-Sized Keyboard Triggers Opera Singers To Belt Out Notes [Video]
TFO creates an outdoor installation using live singers who were attached to keys on a faux piano.
Canadian French-language television network TFO assembled a 12-note giant keyboard with 12 corresponding opera singers. The Living Piano takes direct inspiration from the iconic FAO Schwarz Big Piano, bringing together live music and interactive entertainment.
The 12 singers each wore a vibrating bracelet that buzzed whenever their key was stepped on, which led to a whimsical opera performance. The Living Piano was built for the Festival d’Opéra in Quebec that swept away the participating audience by every step they took.
