This is a project that captures the visual impressions of the scenery from a train and translates them into musical compositions in real-time. The view out of the window is captured with a camera and instantaneously transposed into music and played back on a piano. The fleeting impressions from the moving scenery and the arrangement of the passing objects generate a piece of visual music with its own tempo and rhythm, its own colors and harmonies is produced in a flash.
