Keys of Light

Mr.Beam (The Netherlands)

Location: Rushford Court

Lumiere’s got talent: Live music animates Rushford Court

Pianists of all ages perform their favourite songs, from Mozart to Michael Bublé, as part of this spectacular interactive installation. Triggered by sound, the installation is co-created by local people who were selected through an open call earlier in the year.

Each note played on the grand piano generates a projection on the facade of Rushford Court, transforming the building into a spectacle of shape-shifting patterns responding to the tone, speed, volume of the live music.

Keys of Light has been exhibited around the world, and the song that people love to play in every country is Yann Tiersen’s soundtrack for the film, Amélie.
