[show]The use of the player piano throughout the series appears to reference Kurt Vonnegut's first novel (Player Piano) which describes a dystopian future in which almost every aspect of human life is automated. In his novel the protagonist rails against a life devoid of purpose or choice thanks to the ubiquity of machines.
