Whosawhatsits: talking piano

22 Apr

Still not sure what to make of this but it sure is damned interesting… and more than a little creepy. A team of german scientists (I believe) designed this contraption for the World Venice Forum. The text that its reciting is the proclamation of the European Environmental Criminal Court which, possibly just makes it more creepy.

I can’t help but think about how this relates to our common interaction with music itself. It’s generally believed that music says what words cant. So what happens when music can in fact say words? Thoughts?
