Duo presents a video projection synchronising the images of two women playing, from memory, a piano sonata for four hands by Anton Diabelli. On a monitor we see them in an everyday situation that both disrupts and emphasises the act of performing.

In focusing on the relationship between the movements of the women's hands and the production of sound, the silence of Duo attends to the mental and physical work of their performance rather than its outcome.
