With my affection to the piano, I built a piano and used the expression in Houdini to achieve all the movements of the keys. Chopin is one of my favorite composers, so I chose to make the animation match Chopin’s Nocturne No.2 in E Flat, Op.9 No.2 perfectly. It was a very fun project. I enjoyed it a lot.
