Automatic String quartet , by Frank Pahl

Four ukuleles, one toy organ and minimal percussion provide the rhythm and ambience for a Brian Eno inspired composition. The quartet is sequenced by a microcontroller and triggered by the opening of the score (a mercury switch is embedded on the first page of the score). I believe the motors are 60 rpm, hence the tempo.
