Born with perfect pitch and Synesthesia (a blending of the senses), Arbib possesses the ability to create entire musical compositions on the spot – without any prior preparation.
His unique trait of “seeing” musical tones as distinct colors guides him in his creative process: he visualizes a landscape of colors in his head – which he later transcribes into music notation – or when he sits down at the piano and creates a completely new piece of music on the spot.
Arbib gives solo piano recitals which he calls “Face to Face: Composition In the Moment” – in which he first starts by playing his original piano music, and then proceeds to ask his audiance to give him any melody or musical theme – where upon he creates a new composition in the moment – based on the melody that was given to him.
