PIANOLAinPRIMETIME - AMUZ [BE]
If you want to listen to music today without being able to play an instrument yourself, it is a simple matter of turning on the radio or scrolling down the Spotify list. At the turn of the twentieth century though, before radios were a common feature of people’s living rooms, the pianola was the solution of choice: an automatic piano that played with the help of a perforated paper roll. PIANOLAinPRIMETIME presents various facets of this fascinating and magical mechanical piano. Famous masters come back to life and ‘impossible’ music takes you into an undiscovered world of sound. The pianola will accompany silent films, and AMUZ itself will be converted into an authentic dance hall. Come and discover the pianola and its astonishingly diverse repertoire!
