A piano performance that balances chaos and harmony: Eric Lewis on TED.com

Posted by: Tedstaff

Eric Lewis (who plays the White House tonight!) explores the piano’s expressive power as he pounds and caresses the keys (and the strings) in a performance during the 2009 TED Prize session. He plays an original song, a tribute to ocean and sky and the vision of the TED Prize winners. (Recorded at TED2009, February 2009, in Long Beach, California. Duration: 4:54.)
