Gamelatron Robotic Orchestra

The Gamelatron combines computers with Balinese and Javenese percussion to make a robotic orchestra. Each drum and bell is controlled by 117 mallets from a laptop running a MIDI. Shown here with composer A. Taylor Kuffner, the Gamelatron is currently appearing at the Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn, NY. While this may not be the band to hire for your wedding reception, you certainly wouldn't have to worry about much of a tip. Visit their site to see the musical robot in action.
