If you’re a pianist and you think you’re not quite getting through to your listeners when you play your latest party piece, this could be the way forward. A piano that actually speaks.
The keys are struck by solenoids, and the resulting sound mimics human speech. It’s completely weird, and of course what’s stranger still is that it’s reciting the Proclamation of the European Environmental Criminal Court at World Venice Forum 2009.
However, if you’ve ever wondered how your piano might sound if it was actually trying to transmit a message from the bowels of hell straight from the devil himself then it could well sound spookily similar to this.
