When visiting my sister Amanda in New Orleans, we enjoyed photographing (and pretending to play) the piano outside her house. Pianos, rendered unplayable by the flood, decorated the streets.
When I came across the shutter as a base of a potential piece it triggered the even element of a piano key as I recalled the piano on Fletcher Street. The piece plays the soul and rhythm of New Orleans.
