Mobile: The Computer Laughed (Perpetual Motion) Hugh Le Caine

Mobile: The Computer Laughed (Perpetual Motion) (1970) (1:51) was one of the first pieces to be produced on the NRC Computer Music System. The form was influenced by the mobiles of Alexander Calder: the elements seem to build recognizable harmony and counterpoint, but then shift to something unexpected.
