Last week the robots went to the Scopitone Festival in Nantes, France. Together with @barfton I presented an interactive version of the drum robot MR-808, so that the audience is able to control the drum robot by themselves.
And we really learned a lot: a group of thirty 10-year old pupils is the best way to do a hardcore stress test to your installation, interface and setup. They will press every available button – all at once and all the same time! More on that interactive part of our installation will follow soon.
For the French speaking audience we gave an interview for the well known French newspaper LA LIBERATION about the installation, where I talk about the background of the installation, robot music and future plans.
Apart from the exhibition I took part at the musical program, as can be seen in the video on the top of the page, playing a sold out show on Friday beside DISCLOSURE, JON HOPKINS and others.
So – it was awesome! Thanks to Cederic, Yeliz and Guillaume to make this happen.
