Like the computer keyboard, the musical keyboard is a precise and high-bandwidth input device. Its power is a consequence of its elegant embodiment of the structure of Western European music.
In this talk, Chris will use a combination of the two kinds of keyboard to explain scales, tuning systems and some differences between traditional and algorithmic musical performance.

Chris is a certified BABE (Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Engineering), and consequentially an idiophile and technophobe. He began to make music with code partly to compensate for his poor technique, and partly because air piano is unsatisfying. When he works, he works for ThoughtWorks, though that isn't all the time.
