Innerhearing explores the dichotomy between what is considered traditional and modern piano sounds. This also happens to correspond with external and internal sounds. In weaving a path through initially opponent ideas, they come together in a consonant union, opening up doors to new sounds that may only exist within the realm of imagination. This is a live piano permanence but without performers.
The video was conceived by the composer and was realized by a group of student visual artists at the Shanghai Conservatory. Following the flow of the music, it combines lights and shadows from both inside and outside of the piano to create new, otherworldly shapes and patterns.
