A Talking Piano
No seriously. This is nothing but an analog player piano, nothing but eighty-eight keys, strings and a bunch of levered hammers, whose program imitates human speech. Coming from Alex Ross's new blog: Unquiet Thoughts. It's great to have him back to blogging all the time again. The text is cut off occasionallly, but it doesn't take seeing all the subtitles to begin grasping the full implication of what this means for the studies of both music and language.
