Pessi Parviainen (FI)
The Semi-Automatic Guitar
The Semi-Automatic Guitar has an attached robotic device that plays the guitar’s strings.
The guitar’s neck is still handled by the guitarist – hence the name.
Pessi Parviainen works in the convergence zone of music, visual art, and performance. Having recently begun doctoral studies at Theatre Academy Helsinki, his research takes a systemic approach at musicianship, considering the musician to be more than simply a sound source.
