Playing a Cityscape as a Piano Score - information aesthetics

6/15/2011


A really great sounding idea in concept and visually. Still, very cool and wish I had thought of it.
Pianola City Music: Playing a Cityscape as a Piano Score - information aesthetics:

"Pianola City Music [akkogoldenbeld.com] attempts to overcome the almost inevitable urge to program and computerize our most imaginative ideas.
A physical model of the Dutch city of Eindhoven is rolled onto a drum and attached to a piano, so that its buildings hit the piano keys in a specific rhythm and the physical pattern of the city becomes expressed into a unique sound. The cityscape Eindhoven apparently produces a quite chaotic soundscape, although this might also be influenced by the methodology of it all, of which another beautiful example includes SolarBeat."
