Daddy Mbira - Mbira Penguin Talks is a half an hour computer composition entirely based on the sound of the (composer owned) mbira (thumb-piano).
It tries to explore all possibilities of manipulation of the relative short mbira pluck sound, like multiplication, extreme tone duration lengthening, making it possible to create chords, sound landscapes, sound beams etcetera.
The computer also made it possible to create a strict four part canon in the prime, thus combining a western classical composition method with an instrument not at all fitted to do so.
