Since 2005 I am constructing musical robots and automated instruments. My last robots was the MR-808.
The goal is to build custom made instruments, which can be used in the context of electronic music in terms of musical structure. The technical demand is that they must be able to be played live, must integrate into an existing setup and be controlled with midi.
The greater idea is to transfer electronically produced and thus fully determined sounds into the physical world. Hence the origin of the sounds is highlighted in a way no conventional media of electronic music production would be able to.
