Abstract

Over the last few years Companhia de Música Teatral (CMT) has been
developing a series of original ideas that has designated as “artistic-educative
constellations”. CMT's work is deeply rooted in music but explores links with
other artistic languages and technology and proposes an intrinsic articulation
with education (in a very broad sense). The CMT projects are a kaleidoscope of
Performance pieces, Installations, Workshops, Publications and
TransFormation activities and the piano has been central to many of these
projects. One constellation in particular, Anatomia do Piano, has made the
piano the “attractor” of a series of initiatives that connect the “main-stage” with
the classroom, the science laboratory or the community. The installation
Pianoscópio, part of this constellation, is the subject of this communication: it is
based on the idea of “deconstructing” the piano, in order to contribute to a more
profound understanding of music, creating an opportunity for discovery and
expression. It is an experience that transforms the piano into a collective
instrument, a sound installation/sculpture capable of producing sounds of a
myriad of colours, a space to be inhabited by people and produce sound
through their combined interaction. In this communication we will report on the
experience using the Pianoscópio in a wide range of situations, from workshops
with children to concerts and recordings with professional musicians, science
based projects or projects with the community.
