Monstercat and Conro reinvent the Vancouver street piano experience

Monstercat recently teamed up with one of Canada’s top electronic artists Conro to reimagine the street piano. The BC-based record label switched up this wildly popular street art trend, allowing passers-by to instantly become dance music producers. The piano made appearances throughout Vancouver over two days as patrons indulged in high-decibel shenanigans.

To create this unique instrument, Monstercat teamed up with Roland Sound to outfit the piano with a synthesizer and speakers. The keys were programmed with samples from Conro’s new single Heartbeat. The audio runs through Ableton Live and each sample is quantized to reduce imprecision, allowing each and every Vancouverite to masterfully remix Conro’s track.

Visitors at Stanley Park, English Bay, and other iconic Vancouver locations have already had the chance to immerse themselves in this one-of-a-kind experience, but if you missed the piano’s two-day tour, you still have a chance to put your remixing skills to the test.

Monstercat’s street piano will make another appearance at the free Monstercat Compound Festival on Saturday, August 24th. The festival is free and features an educational music industry panel, the winner of the Call of the Wild mix contest, and headliner Drezo. The Compound is a can’t-miss experience, and this street piano is just the icing on the cake. Check out a video below.
