Jeffrey Burns' The Piano of Light is a computer-driven visual music system created to play Scriabin's Prometheus and other pieces of visual music.

The press quoted on the page summarize the project pretty well: "With four contemporary works and the Seventh Sonata of Scriabin, together with a projection screen filled with graphics and the lively play of 60 spotlights onto an artificial 'sky' hung from Podewil's theater ceiling, the first performance on this 'instrument' became a rapturous multimedia event."- Neue Musikzeitung

A full description of the project and videos are linked at the bottom of the page.
