Music, Mechanics and Musicians - Musica, Meccanica e Musicisti

Manuela Cesana

Talk & Performance: We will make a premise explaining what is Mechanical Music, showing original musical supports (cardboard and perforated piano rolls). A hint also to what AMMILAB is and what other projects we have developed, always in the context of Mechanical Music. We will not fail to show the project we brought to Maker Faire Rome, where Musical Machines interact with each other and with real musicians by performing music of various kinds. There will be time for any questions or comments from viewers.
