11.05.13_Uncanny_ValleyIn this newly-commissioned piece, the piano performance of Oni Buchanan joins and reflects the spoken text of the poem Uncanny Valley as performed by its author, poet Jon Woodward.

In 1970, roboticist Masahiro Mori coined the term “uncanny valley” to describe the emotional and empathic chasm between humans and imperfect human simulacra, a gap created by their imperfection. This program searches out what is most uncanny, and most human, in both language and music.
