Talking Piano

Ever heard a piano talk? This is why I love automatic instruments!

Thanks to Patrick Woodward for sending this to me.

    Best. Vocoder. Ever.

    Wouldn’t a grand piano’s action be better suited to this kind of rapid-fire keying?

    I imagine cost & availability were factors…

    There’s a charming remotely controlled “ghost” piano at the Magic Castle named Cleo, which interacts with the patrons at the bar by playing various musical quotes. It would be cool if Cleo could also talk!

    Very neat, but without seeing the words, I didn’t understand any of it. I figured some was in German, but whenever I peeked, it showed English words (immediately allowing me to match the sound to my newfound expectation).

    Wow – (as a pianist) that is about the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen!
