Sonicrobots.com is dedicated to robotic music instruments, autonomous tonal music machines, musical hacks and circuit bending.
The blog is run by me (Moritz Simon Geist), member of the artist group SCIENCE FICTION CHILDREN. I try to investigate on and spread electronic, mechanic and conceptual information on robotic music making. I see hacking – in this case music hacking – as a form of anti-passiveness, through which I think the individual can have an impact on his or her environment, status and state of mind. I like the idea of the individual forming its surrounding rather than consuming passively.

Tonal Hacking / Robotics / 8Bit.
Moritz Simon Geist, born in 1981. His projects range from tonal hacking to robotics and automated robotic instrument, adding a new perspective to the “man-machine-interface”. But his installations go beyond the basic physical and technical demand: the main theme is rather the transition from a deterministic (usually binary) system into the physical and mechanical world. This transformation entains an greater stress on the “error” of the physical world and lets the object be both more tangible and vulnerable. Moritz Simon Geist lives and works in Dresden, Germany.
