Eric Skiff wro­te:

The pia­no box is a (somewhat polypho­nic) paper toy synthe­si­zer with 12 keys, each trig­ge­ring a tone and an LED. The keys are a set of capa­ci­ti­ve sen­sors, made of cop­per tape, con­trol­led by an Ardui­no Mega run­ning the Cap­Sen­se and Tone libra­ri­es. The code for this pro­ject, writ­ten by Will Byrd and Cata­ri­na Mota, can be down­lo­a­dedhere. Ple­a­se note that the cur­rent ver­si­on of the Tone library has some pro­blems on Ardui­no 1.0. so it’s best to use ver­si­on 23 or ear­li­er.

The libra­ri­es used are avai­la­ble here:
