The paper relates some experiences from a recent production of orchestrating Conlon Nancarrow
Piano Studies for performance on Pipe Organ. Reflections that surfaced during this work concerned the layered
nature of interfaces, automation (and thus allusions to the different conceptions of artificial intelligence), and
leaky abstractons. This also touches on the authenticity and perception of compositions and performances
involving machinic elements, as an extension of human aesthetic capabilities.
