Christopher Seed is an international concert pianist who can play piano both normally and in mirror image. In 1997 he commissioned the Dutch firm Poletti and Tuinman Fortepiano Makers to build the world's first left-handed piano. It is a complete mirror image of a normal piano with the high notes on the left and the low notes on the right. The lid opens the other way as well so Chris performs on the right side of the stage (as seen by the audience) and the pedals are reversed.
Being left-handed and with the piano reversed, Chris can now play more of the melodic and elaborate parts with his dominant hand, which he feels not only gives him a physical advantage but also a more instinctive way of playing.
