The Happy Valley Band is what happens when a computer discovers the Great American Songbook, tries its best to pick out the tunes by ear, then writes down what it hears and demands that human performers try to play it. Bandleader David Kant uses and abuses machine hearing technology and automated music transcription software to re-contextualize the voices of such American pop icons as Elvis Presley, Patsy Cline, and James Brown with full band accompaniment. (Kurt Gottschalk, WFMU April 2012.)
