DON'T SHOOT THE PIANO PLAYER
Here's an interesting Westworld thought that we discussed at the ThinkGeek World Domination HQ holiday lunch (we set aside a Westworld spoilers table): the player piano was one of the first robots welcomed into the home. It lived in the parlor and entertained your guests. Nolan has talked about how the player piano was an automaton designed to evoke an emotion but not how normalized it was at a time when automation like electronic washing machines were just coming onto the market.
Ironically, part of the decline of the player piano was because of improvement in the quality of phonograph recordings. And here we have a modern recording of some of the more memorable music transcribed for the player piano from HBO's Westworld. Composed or arranged by Ramin Djawadi, the songs on this LP will help tide you over while the park is shut down until 2018. It includes favorite versions of songs from Soundgarden, The Cure, Radiohead, Amy Winehouse, and Nine Inch Nails, among others. We had the option of getting it in black, white, Dolores blue, or blood red. We went with the one we felt was most iconic. This white version, evocative of the opening credits.
