In 1878 Eadweard Muybridge took a series of photographs at Leland Stanford's Palo Alto Stock Farm as an experiment in order to determine whether a galloping horse ever lifts all four hooves off the ground at the same time. He then copied the images for a machine he invited called a zoopraxiscope, a type of early movie projector.  The farm later became the campus of Stanford University, where John Chowning (with the help of Max Mathews) set up the first university computer music lab just a few miles away in 1964.
