Garry Kasparov vs. Deep Blue
Garry Kasparov vs. Deep Blue is based on the famous 1997 chess match between grandmaster Garry Kasparov and the IBM supercomput- er Deep Blue, billed at the time as the ultimate man vs. machine encounter. The music is derived from the moves made in the six games of that match.page8image15248page8image15408page8image15568
