2304+1 is an improvise performance made by human and machine. A mobile pianola is composed by 48 solenoids which are placed on white keys of conventional piano and one camera. By converting the frame difference to solenoid movement, the machine is able to convert dancers movements into random piano notes, as well as receiving midi from Ableton Live to create grooves made of machine noise and acoustic piano sound. This project explores how the automatics can play a part in a improvise performance with human.
