In all the projects of Antonio Jose Guzman there is a relationship with the location at which he presents the project. He calls this “Sociological mapping”. In the project ‘El Organo Oriental. Transillumination Sequence #1’ (ELOO) project, Guzman places an original Cuban organ in a large space so that the sound is given free rein.

The enlarged sheets made by a robot laser engraver with the unique organ score fill the space. This makes the DNA not only audible but also visible. The scores were also used to be played with a marimba, Piano and an artificial intelligence music sensor interfaced robot.

Punch cards are cardboard cards with holes. These punch cards controlled mechanical devices, before the invention of computers. The punch cards were the software for the machines. In an organ punch cards control the organ music. Punched pattern cards inspired the designed of IBM systems that store large amounts of data, leading us to the modern digital age.
