Allan Kozzin in today's NYT says:

`In George Lewis's "Virtual Concerto," the soloist was a computer-driven
piano,
its software programmed to "react" to aspects of the orchestra's
performance.'

The comment is:

"Those works [...] were the most pleasing."

I've been searching the net in vain for more information as to what
"reaction" here implies. Anyone with more information about
what Lewis' system does?
