The city of Eindhoven as a music score for piano

Apr 21, 2011 by Hiromi Ogawa

It's a kind of player piano that reads the city like a score.  The music it creates is not "harmoious" per se, but then again, what city is?  The analogy of architecture as music and vice versa has always been a source of fascination.  Goethe was quoted as saying "Architecture is 'frozen music'… Really there is something in this; the tone of mind produced by architecture approaches the effect of music."
