    Hmmm…sounds interesting! Though it would be difficult to play a piano whose keys have been painted. Strange feeling I imagine!

  2. John, I was thinking the same thing, especially if they’re not careful and the paint drips down in between the keys. Also, if they’re painting the sound boards, that’s going to seriously infringe on the sonic integrity of the instrument.

    Of course, it’s probably more about the art than the music, and at least it’s happening. I wonder if any famous (or not yet famous but up and coming) composers and/or singer/performers will participate and/or entertain? “:D
