"Igor Stravinsky (1882 1971), acclaimed as the most distinguished, if not the greatest, of living composers, now sojourning in America after an absence of ten years, ardently advocates and practices the composition of mechanical music - of not merely piano music, that is, which can be played on an automatic instrument, but music composed without purpose of performance by hand, designed for the player-piano solely, and intended to take advantage of characteristics and limitations inherent in an instrument operated by a perforated roll of paper."

"There is anew polyphonic truth in the player-piano. There are new possibilities. It is something more. It is not the same thing as a piano. The player-piano resembles the piano, but it also resembles the orchestra. It shares the soul of the automobile."

Edward Elgar was a fan of the gramophone.
