Re: Paper tape anyone?

The Northleach mechanical musical instrument museum, sadly a bit dodgy due to Keith Harding, IIRC, being found out for historical kiddy-fiddling, has a wonderful piano which could play and record using inks onto a roll and mercury baths and moving copper contacts etc. The rendition of Rhapsody in Blue recorded by Gershwin himself on that very piano is utterly transporting.
