ANDROID - MONOTUNETo illustrate Android's tagline "be together. not the same." we created a new instrument called a Monotune. Once a functioning grand piano, reengineered and tuned so each of the 88 piano keys would play only one note, Middle C. Then we tried playing Beethoven on it to test how monotonous the Monotune could be.
be together. not the same.
Directed by Jonathan Glazer
A piano isn't just a singular object but a community of 88 distinct individuals (sounds/notes) that work together to create music.
A piano's diversity is what makes the music it produces even possible. Without diversity is a piano even a piano?
Is Beethoven even Beethoven? Whoa, not sure what just happened.
