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.

Watch a documentary movie of this project below.
