Musical Robots @ LEMUR

Earlier this week I checked out a cool show at LEMUR (League of Electronic Musical Urban Robots) over in Brooklyn. They're a group of artists who develop robotic musical instruments. (They make robots that are instruments, not robots that play existing instruments.) There were electronic string instruments, cymbals and drums with different mallets attached to them, this xylophone looking bell instrument, etc.

This guy was beat-boxing out a pattern which the computer translated and then had the robots play. How wild is that! Music and art and technology all welded together...
