LIKENESS (for PIANO DAY 2016)
RELEASED: 28 MARCH 2016
"Piano Day is an annual worldwide celebration founded by a group of likeminded people around Berlin based composer Nils Frahm. In the same tradition as it’s inaugural launch in 2015, Piano Day takes place on the 88th day of the year - 28th March in 2016 - because of the number of keys on the instrument being celebrated.
The aim of the day is to create a platform for piano related projects in order to promote the development of musical dimensions and to continue sharing the centuries-old joy of playing piano.
The first project revealed by the Piano Day team in 2015 was the building of what will be the world’s tallest piano, the Klavins M450 designed by the visionary piano builder David Klavins. Unlike traditional concert grand pianos, which are usually built horizontally, this giant is orientated vertically. Weighing nearly a tonne and standing at 4.5m high the M450 stretches over two floors, a design that allows the strings to vibrate better."
