The other night we're watching The Voice and they often use shells or one of those grand piano style DPs from Roland. But this time, the set and the performers are in white, and Paul Mirkovich is playing a DP, which you can see in the shell, because it's clear! I'm watching and thinking, isn't the point of the shell to make people think you're playing a real piano?
Yet, as I watched the performance, I was struck by the fact that even though I could see that it wasn't close to a real grand, it kinda worked. Isn't the mind a weird thing?
The great thing about music is that there's always something to learn. The frustrating thing about music is that there's always something to learn!
Looks like the Roland V piano or a Nord Grand?? Yeah the clear shell is kinda weird but works...somehow though it looks like they painted/covered the digital piano in a lighter shade/material to stick out less.
Postmodernism can do strange things to people.....and people things! Some day they will find a way to make the performers appear translucent too, and we will be able to actually see the adrenaline flowing.. and dinner!
My brother in law has a clear ludwig drum set from the 70's. He polishes them to keep them clear. He is a very good drummer, I think those drums were his first professional set. I think its kind of like keeping and maintaining your first car, nostalgia.
