Iapetos is an automatic marimba.
Its mechanical structure is composed of hammers taken from an old piano and customized in order to be played by solenoids controlled by an Olimex board and other custom electronics through MIDI protocol. An algorithmic composition based on twelve-tone technique is played according to the noise level of the space: whenever the microphone signal is low enough, the instrument performs the piece for 60 seconds.
