Q. Hey Oracle,

Why does Chris Martin after, I don't know, 10 years of playing his Yamaha GT20 pianos, suddenly switch to a different one?

Greetings from Holland

The Oracle replies:

Given Miller is Chris' keyboard technician (and all round genius with a bunch of technology), I asked him about the current key situation.
"This new one can 'play itself' in A Sky Full Of Stars and Magic. What it plays is actually a midi recording of Chris playing the song in rehearsals". He's actually had it since the Christmas Lights video where we did the same trick".
It plays in time with the song and the screens because of Miller's clever synching.
