August 2017 1
As a lot have requested, here’s an update to what’s up with Sonic Robots in summer 2017.
Some might have heard, I am currently recording the first SR album. From what I know it will be the first album ever dedicated to robots playing techno. And I really wonder why no human has gone there before! The album will consist of several tracks of robotic techno and electronica (well, without electronics). It explores the inner sound of robotic mechanics made with futuristic robot instrument! Release date is beginning of next year. Sounds good? Keep posted at this channel!
For the production I am working together with Jan and Andi from Mouse on Mars who constantly spread their never ending wisdom of sound knowledge and artistic wizardry. Furthermore we could convince the Initiative Musik (german governmental arts funding) to support the album.
The third party is the publishing house Oh My Music! which help getting the paperwork together. Invaluable!
Lecture at NYU Berlin
Another big news is my lecture “Creative Experiments with Emerging Music Technologies“ which I will hold for the first time at the NYU Berlin , starting this semester. I am very much looking forward to spread more knowledge and work with young promising artists.
A new Interactive Installation
Starting mid-September I am finally working on a new interactive installation. The installation “Soft Manipulator” will be displayed for several weeks at the Kustodie Gallery Dresden. This interactive Installation features several robots which can be used to manipulate the sound of everyday items and small instruments – by the audience.
Thats it for now!
