Instrument-a-day 11: Short Ride in a Fast Chihuahua

My toy chihuahua always barks 26 times in a row. I sent out a call for very short 26-beat compositions for piano and chihuahua, and received over 50 scores from 15 composers.

 

The computer listens to the dog and plays back the scores in time with its yaps.

 

See the chihuahua, hear all the microscores, and much more at the Qubit Machine Music Festival tomorrow 2/12 through Friday in NYC! qubitmusic.com/machine-music.html

 

Update: here's a video of the full chihuahua experience! vimeo.com/87600578
