Programming with the piano as interface

The CodeKlavier is a system created by Felipe Ignacio Noriega and Anne Veinberg which allows the pianist to live code through playing the piano. “Hello World” is the first prototype piece created especially for live control of the actions of a mechanical toy piano (The Robot Toy Piano) through playing the interface of an acoustic midi piano.
