“Entrancing” (Jim DeRogatis) neoclassical composer/pianist Larkhall brings classical virtuosity to his “vividly beautiful work” (Hämeenkyrön Sanomat), weaving technology into his live performance through computer-generated visuals created algorithmically from his music as he plays.
The Sea Was Never Blue, his 2019 album of solo piano music, pairs each of ten new works for piano with a short film in which each note corresponds to an event on-screen. To create these visualisations, Larkhall recorded digital data from his home studio’s piano along with the audio, allowing him to create algorithms that transform the musical data into shapes and colours on-screen.
In one video (Map & Territory), each note in the opening section causes one of a row of trees to grow slightly (each tree represents a different note). When the melody starts, each melodic note causes a folded-paper bird to fly in from offscreen, eventually settling in the tree corresponding with its pitch. As the piece progresses, leaves come out on the trees, change colour and fall; at the piece’s emotional peak the birds fly into the air together and depart in a swarm.
