Emotive machinery

I’ve always been interested in the interaction between humans and machines. Recently Superstar DJ ENO passed this over to me and I thought it was well worth a mention… Felix’s Machines Composition 2 is a lovely example of what would be known traditionally as Mechanical Music ‘ taking reference from music boxes, barrel organs, player pianos etc. The real appeal for me is the inherent beauty created by a hybrid of computers (sequencing), mechanical engineering and structural sound design - a lovely contemporary take on a 9th century idea.
