Allora & Calzadilla – Algorithm

An organ that instead of the keyboard has an ATM. When using the ATM, the organ plays: each key corresponds to a sound (each time different); all the sounds played come together at the end for a triumphant composition, at the moment of distributing the money.

We worked with a major German organ producer, with a bank, with an electronics engineer who modified the ATM program, with a music composer. We followed all the different productions until the installation in Venice.
