|Project Summary||Project Information|
Playing the piano has always been a musical aspiration for many but the physical design of the device makes it impossible to play duets or allow those who have suffered from injury to arm to play it to its full capacity. Often the modifications that can be done to make standard pianos have these capabilities are expensive and often require permanent modifications to the piano. In this project we tackle these problem by creating a simple installation system that allows that requires minimal to no modification to the piano.
This project is a continuation of previous years model, where this iteration will focus on extending the range of notes that system can play and the dynamic range of play of the piano. Facilitating play to disabled users is also a key objective, where the automated piano will serve as the right hand or left hand of the user. The system will also be able to understand the change in tempo for the user and adjust itself accordingly. Also working as a practice tool for those who are hoping to play duets. External support for this project is provided by Ron Dufort and guidance by Art North.
