Third excerpt from Sara Robertsliner notes to ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531):

For the audience, wondering how this artifact has so much presence, is so handily managing a situation they themselves might be challenged to negotiate? There is something in io’s performance that a human musician, even playing io as an instrument, could not do, even were the human to give up agency entirely and act as an automaton.

The fact that this assemblage stands, studded with missile switches, alone, on stage is meaningful.
