We’re very excited about pianos.
It’s rare that we get the opportunity to shoot at a piano, we were spoiled by Luke Jerram’s public piano project during Sydney Festival 2 years ago but since then there has been a lack of pianos on Shoot The Player – you can’t easily carry one around with you to a shoot and although we get flexible when someone offers to play a keyboard, it’s just not the same.
For this hypnotic, languorous acoustic version of Sydney band Parades’ Loserspeak in New Tongue, we descended on one of the band member’s living rooms – displacing his elderly grandfather. And rather than being surrounded by passing strangers, we were joined by images of Dan’s family, watching over us from inside picture frames – with the real family listening in from nearby rooms.
We hope you like it.
