A self-playing toy piano by Kathy Hinde. This work has been shown in conjunction with the piano migrations installations and performances. First shown in September 2008

An interactive version created with Nahum Mantra uses two toy pianos, one red, one white. The audience are presented with both pianos, and can play with them. If they play notes on the white piano, the red piano provides a live, automated accompaniment.. in the true style of a toy instrument. This premiered at the Future of Sound event at Arnolfini, Bristol on 25th April 2009.
