Street pianist

Filed under: Imaginary,Real — liyiwei @ 7:47 pm

This is an attempt to depict the visuals appearing in my mind while listening to this podcast about a guy who played the particular piano piece “Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence” by Ryuichi Sakamoto outdoors to express his personal and shared public sorrows.

Roughly speaking, the visuals are inspired by the scenes in the 2002 film “the pianist” but with the guy playing the piano on the street within a ruined city.
(It seems less dramatic in reality.)

I could draw the scenes out of my head but it might take too much time (which I don’t have right now), so I decided to give generative AI (in particular, Adobe Firefly) a try.
