David BOWEN [United States]


cloud piano uses a real-time video of clouds to articulate a device that presses the keys on a piano. The system is set in motion to play the corresponding keys as the clouds move across the sky and change shape. The resulting sound is generated from unique key patterns created by ethereal forms that build, sweep, fluctuate and dissipate in the sky.
