touch pianist

A musical toy that allows you to perform hard-to-play classical piano music just by tapping the rhythm of the piece on your keyboard: touch pianist by Batuhan Bozkurt.

Touch Pianist is one of the latest implementations of an idea that's been around for a long time: technologically-assisted musical performance; here's an historical overview on the subject: The Conductor Program — computer-mediated musical performance (http://www.musanim.com/tapper/).

How neat! This is so much fun :) I feel like a professional now. Thank you Bart for sharing.

horizontal rectangles make more sense for duration of note. I no reason for bigger circles at the top.

musanim said...

Al Scotch, the bigger circles indicate louder notes. There's a problem with indicating duration: the duration is partly controlled by the user. Therefore, you can't show the duration until after the note is being played --- and since the note disappears after it's played, you can't do that either.

This is fantastic! Thoroughly enjoyed a good hour 'chill time' playing songs on this. The competative monkey in me would love a challenge mode!

that's absolutely awesome!
I played the piano years ago but couldn't ever manage to play the moonshine sonata because my hands are too small - now I could.
thanks for this nice toy

Meh. There's no real user dynamic here. It's like a recording that won't play unless you constantly do something, sort of like an old Victrola that has to be wound in order to keep playing.

If you want a game where you actually have to get the rhythm correct in order to play the piece, try Guitar Hero.
