Bjork uses the Gameleste on her new album, Biophilia, and also live on the tour in support of it. It sits there and plays itself, electro-mechanically, via a MIDI interface. This means it can play a lot more than a person with 8 fingers and 2 thumbs can. In the song "Virus", the Gameleste part is based on generative patterns - self-multiplying music. It is astonishing stuff, made possible through the creative use of computer algorithms.
