Piano Paille Pinhole are a series of music and light jam sessions. A collaboration with jazz pianist Stéphane Sassi. 2 artists get together with a pinhole camera, studio flash kit, grand piano, hundreds of straws and dialogue that creates images and music.
Stephane Sassi developed a technique of prepared piano, using straws to alter the sounds of the piano that take it well beyond the scope of what we are used to hearing, while the photographs aim to go beyond representation and respond to the rhythms and melodies with texture and colour. Piano Paille Pinhole is the complicity between light, sound, and intuition to create direct and unforeseeable images.
