Unprepared Piano - Thompson & Craighead.
In Unprepared Piano, a piano is connected to a database of music MIDI
files from all over the web. This library of scores is then performed
automatically.The musical scores contain a wide variety of
instrumentations and are not generally intended simply for piano, so it
performs each piece from beginning to end by randomly picking and
choosing from its different parts. This means it might play bits of drum
parts and percussion alongside chords and melodies intended for the
other instruments. The piano performs and reinterprets each score every
time it is played. The software to achieve this was created by ART+TEK.
This was shown a little while ago, but I rediscovered it on youtube
today & thought, this is actually an excellent artwork.
