Object: Piano parts
Sound Piece: 2 minutes 9 seconds. (Recorded, edited and mixed by Robert Mullen, Piano strings played by Ciara Murphy. Music written by Ciara Murphy)
The project is about memory and how people tend to remember things in fragments. Many things from everyday life can trigger memories from the past. The piano is filled with memories of my grandparents, particularly my Nana as she was the one who played the piano most. I have also recorded a sound piece using the strings of the piano and a fully working keyboard. This plays beside the piece reinforcing the fact that the piano keys no longer function as they did when the piano was whole. They do move and can be played but no sound emanates from them anymore.
