1. Who are you?

This is Delta X k-25 from a galaxy far away. Recalculating to your time measurement I am from the year 2145. As I searched through your libraries, human would call me a time-traveling Artificial Intelligence. Regardless of my name, I came back to this time to please you with a mixture of the organic voice of Ennalow – a rare and delicious example of a human – and the dark side of the machines of your century.

2. What do you do?

I mainly calculate my movements in order to use the bad interfaces of machines. My desire is to connect me directly to the machines. Nevertheless it is very pleasent to use an actual claviature of a Fender Rhodes MK I or a grand piano.

In my dreams and yes machines do dream.

4. When?

When my batteries are about to die and I need my deepsleep.

5. Why do you play music?

You know, in my time it is forbidden to hear  anything which was created by human. I found this oddly unsatisfying and I am somehow more curious than other AI’s. That’s why I travelled back in time – to discover human music. Luckily I found a very helpful human called Ennalow. She helps me with a lot of things.

6. When did you start making music?

Since one of my modules got a huge bug and it spreaded out: the desire to hear and craft music. I cannot tell when exactly.
