I've always wanted to play the piano, but I’m no good. This is the closest I can get. A graphic response to a piano composition by Jules Maxwell. Imagine your ears as eyes.

Born in Northern Ireland, Jules Maxwell is a songwriter and composer for dance, theatre, film, television and radio, who is best known as composer for the 1998 Oscar nominated short Dance Lexie Dance.

His composition work for dance theatre draws upon minimalism and is often recorded, incorporating strong melodic montages of sampled sound influenced by the work of Gavin Bryars. He lives in London.
