Solo for Duet
Solo For Duet is an interactive work that explores Eve’s desire to create a clean slate, to “erase herself” artistically, in order to discover a new voice. By using a Disklavier, an acoustic piano, that can trigger sampled sounds, Eve is able to create a “ghost” piano — a dialogue between the real piano and its virtual self. In the process she searches for her own voice.
“I asked for this. Change. Just need to erase… Everything.” Eve Egoyan
Eve is a reluctant performer and fiercely private. To echo this sentiment, sections of the text are obscured by diacritic characters, only revealing themselves through the act of scrolling. The animations used throughout the piece only ever hint at the objects they represent, never fully revealing themselves. A single emerging portrait that tenuously resolves or vanishes captures the notion of erasure.
SoloForDuet.ca interactive is a companion piece to the feature documentary Duet for Solo Piano.
SoloForDuet.ca was created by media artist and filmmaker Su Rynard and Alex Wittholz / Helios Design Labs.
