Logos Foundation – Robot Orchestra concert

6 6 people viewed this event.

Imagine a collection of more than sixty virtuoso musical robots that can play nearly any composition. Traditional instruments such as a piano, percussion, brass, woodwind or a  variety of string instruments are combined with unheard sounds produced by newly invented instruments.

All these automata are fully acoustic and do neither use electronic sounds nor amplification. The Logos Robot Orchestra only has genuine musical instruments, driven by the magic of 21st-century robotics, in its ranks.
Mechanical instruments have existed for a long time. Our automatons surpass their historical antecedents on various levels: all musical robots have full dynamic control as well as full polyphony. Their capabilities easily exceed those of human players. The microtonal capabilities and extreme precision of the automatons turn them into the perfect tool to explore musical and expressive possibilities.

The orchestra does more than just play any style of music, it can create astonishing interactive music in real time. Dancers and musicians use gesture-sensing technologies including sonar and radar systems – developed in-house – to control the sounds directly with their own bodies. The generated music is gesture-controlled. Instead of dancers reacting to music, the music is derived from the movement of the dancers.
