Play an algorithmic robotic percussion ensemble via a re-purposed piano – no musical knowledge required!
The moon plays an important role in the rhythms of our planet and our lives. Incelebration of these natural rhythms, we will enhance our underlyingrhythmic generation algorithm, so that you will be able to play rhythms ofthe moon!
The Rhythmotron is an interactive robotic drum-machine housed in a re-purposedupright piano. The top of the piano holds percussion instruments played byrobotic drumsticks. You can control the rhythms with the knobs and buttons onthe keyboard, which feed into a hidden computer running the XronoMorphrhythm generating software.
