The Sentimental Piano

sentimental piano

This project was a statement on how we use digital space and what it means in the real world. Does what we say online contribute anything to the world?

This project required researching and setting a budget, a successful Kickstarter fundraising campaign, managing a timeline to meet deadlines, installing and modifying the piano with a raspberry pi, solenoids, and programming all applicable components. I coordinated and managed talent across concept to front end to mechanical installation.

Taking data from a website and analyzing for sentiment we then wired a piano to playback major or minor key notes depending on the outcome. Using Balsamic, python scripts, hashtag monitoring, bootstrap and many other pieces to communicate and implement concepts to engineering teams and front end designers allowed for all members of the team to have a clear vision of what they could contribute.
