Look at how far the world of music has come.

With the help of technology, people have become more and more creative in developing new instruments and learning how to play them. As just one example, check out the spontaneous performance in this wonderful video.

You can dance and play music at the same time using this giant piano!

The Big Piano, also known as The Walking Piano, is a piece of instrument that lets you combine the arts of dance, music and play.

This piano was first invented by Remo Saraceni in the 1980s. It is just a gigantic variant of a synthesizer except that users have to use their whole body to play it.

The fact that the piano uses dancing as one of the means of playing is mostly because a person’s feet are responsible for hitting the large keys.

You could even be creative with it by using various techniques like tumbling! Without proper training, one could trip trying to get from one note to the other.

There is a community of walking pianists that promotes this instrument in the public.

For a long time, these instruments were only installed in museums but now, they have spread to public places like malls, hospitals and public squares.

The spread was made possible with the help of Pianoforte Gigante, as they have skilled giant piano artists who play samples and demos of famous songs on many occasions. Watch how they played one at a public mall!

The walking piano performers from Pianoforte Gigante invaded a public place that had one of the instruments installed.

They invited a crowd to watch them play as they were about to perform one of the famous theme soundtracks from the movie Pirates of The Caribbean called “I Am a Pirate.”

Two people moved forward towards the gigantic piano and began stepping on the keys.

Although they were not just plainly stepping on the right keys, each of their movements was wonderfully choreographed. It was plain to see how their nimble feet gracefully floated from note to note as they progressed through the song.

Who knew that hopping and skipping together could be used to create music?

The two performers were playing on separate octaves, accompanying each other with a two-way harmony.

What was amazing is how synchronized are they with all of their hops and skips just to hit their respective notes accurately. They were doing a dance routine and playing a song on the piano all the same time—moreover, they showed some creative ways of playing it. For example, you could see one of the performers doing a cartwheel on the piano and impressively tapped on the right notes!

They pulled off a four-person finale to end their performance.

After they went through the song’s bridge, the performers had to go back to square one—only this time with two more performers joining them on the piano.

The performers were awarded loud cheers and claps from their audience as they finished their piece. Everyone had to agree that they pulled off their musical walk across the giant piano flawlessly!
