Raspberry Pi based installation art: the melody that started at the beginning of the universe

video upload by Floyd Steinberg

"'Pentatonic Permutations' ( ) is a piece of algorithmic piano music that's performed in installation art using a Raspberry Pi-based hardware player synchronized to DCF77, an over-the-air time protocol. In this video, I sit down to talk with its creator, Benjamin Heidersberger, about the technical intricacies, artistic intents, the history of algorithmic music and how media consumption has changed over the last decades.
