MirrorFugue Xiao Xiao and Hiroshi Ishii

Live music emanates from a grand piano, whose keys move under the supple touch of a pianists's hands reflected on the lacquered surface of the instrument. On the music stand is visible a "reflection" of the pianist's face, whose subtle expressions project emotions of the music. MirrorFugue recreates the feeling of a live performance, but nobody is actually there. The pianist is but an illusion of light and mirrors, a ghost at once present and absent.
