Imagine you’re a classical musician, and your gig for the day is to play a piece you’ve never seen before, in front of a live audience. Oh, and the sheet music is being printed in real time, in front of you, on a Canon imageCLASS printer. Can you imagine if one of those printers had screwed up and instead of Beethoven’s Seventh you were staring at “PC LOAD LETTER?” Sounds pretty intense, and for this 19-piece orchestra it was reality. Check out what happened… you may be surprised by the amazing results.
