Remko Jan Hendrik Scha (born 15 September 1945, Eindhoven) is a professor of computational linguistics at the faculty of humanities and Institute for Logic, Language and Computation at the University of Amsterdam. He is also a composer and performer of algorithmic art.
For example, he has made recordings of music which has been generated by motor-driven machines. One example of this type of music is his 1982 album of electric guitar music, Machine Guitars, on which all guitars are played by saber saws without human intervention, except for one in which the guitar is played by a rotating wire brush, again with no human intervention. Performances of his Machine Guitars took place in Amsterdam, Brussels, London, Berlin, New York, San Francisco.
