Half a piano sits in a city square, a strange and somewhat melancholy sight as passersby take a curious glance or walk-around before moving on. “Where is the other half?” is the common musing, or “Who’s going to play half a piano?” Somewhere out there the other half of the piano waits for a player, willing a stranger to complete its fragmented melody.
Distance might separate the truncated music between two people, but the sound and image is bridged instantaneously by Huawei’s 5G-powered Mate 40 Pro smartphone + FreeBuds Pro TWS (True Wireless Stereo) earphones. Putting two halves of a piano in different locations is the company’s statement that technology brings us together more than ever.
Breathtaking sound and image
Playing one half of the piano is indie-folk artist Reese Lansangan, while a professional pianist plays the other half. To complete this long-distance concerto, each pianist uses a Huawei Mate 40 Pro 5G and FreeBuds Pro to synchronize their visuals and sound.
The Huawei Mate 40 Pro 5G is a showcase of super high-fidelity video capture, thanks to its Ultra Vision Cine Camera system. Meanwhile, the FreeBuds Pro delivers a true orchestral experience with its Intelligent Active Noise Cancelling tech in tandem with Dynamic 11mm drivers.
Bridging gaps and linking hearts through technology
As Reese and her half-piano partner greet each other over video call, audiences anticipate the performance with bated breath. Soon enough, beautiful music is coming out of each piano, both performers lost in the piece as they harmonize over the Mate 40 Pro 5G’s seamless and lag-free connection. Equipped with the Kirin 9000 chipset, the phone effortlessly transmits every musical note in real-time, as well as every minute movement or communication between the performers.
Where once there was silence, only the potential of music hanging in the air – there is now a captivating duet of pianists playing a piece in perfect sync, despite a great stretch of distance. For a period of time, two people – virtually strangers – shared a few spellbinding moments, playing off each other’s rhythm as if they were sitting in the same piano bench, side by side.
A genuine connection
Throughout the strange-yet-breathtaking performance, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro 5G’s speed and high-resolution video combined with the riveting sound of the FreeBuds Pro all worked in flawless fashion – not to maintain any “illusions” of presence, but to create a genuine human connection. In those few precious moments, the distance between kindred spirits was bridged by music and human ingenuity.
Recently, most people have been feeling like they’re playing half a piano – that is, being busy with a lot of things while missing a crucial part of their lives. Through the magic of technology, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro 5G becomes instrumental in re-connecting people with their loved ones, their passions, and their drive – creating heartfelt bonds across physical space.
It’s not every day you come across half a piano, but with the Huawei Mate 40 Pro 5G at one’s fingertips, there’s always somebody somewhere ready to fill the notes in between.
