Piano Hero is a musical one-man show for MIDI keyboard, live electronics, live-video and grand piano by Belgian composer Stefan Prins, in which the romantic piano virtuoso is placed into a technological and highly mediated 21th century palace of mirrors in which the piano is deconstructed and then put together differently. A by times Tati-esque interaction emerges between the physical hero on stage and his digitally splintered acoustic and visual avatars. Stephane Ginsburgh performs.
