Our friends from Gamut inc did a wonderful job curating the “Wir sind die Roboter Festival” which will make history as the first German festival dedicated solely to robotic music! It features high-class artists such as the godfathers of robotic music: Logos Foundation and Pierre Bastien as well as Hacklander, Marcus Schmickler or Nicolas Bernier, and of course us and gamut themselves. We are very thrilled about this delicate event which will take in October in Berlin at the Musikbrauerei
Gamut Inc & N.K. Projekt present a three-day festival on the topic of music- robots and machine-music. In concerts, lectures and different discourse formats, we will present many international ensembles from Europe and beyond that build their own autonomously playing music-machines. We will interpret classics of the 20th century on music-machines and also invite composers to write new music for these wild machine-inventions.
We are excited to present this summers tour as it includes some very cool places, like the Jerusalem Design Week 2016 or the famous Mutek festival Montreal alongside other crazy festivals as the Electronic Beats festival Cologne , where we will be displaing our MR-808 Interactive and the brand-new TINCON Conference, a conference for young hackers in Berlin. Very well!
Hope to see you there!

As a hidden guest I will add some robotic spice to Terry Riley’s “In C”, which will be performed at the Volksbühne Berlin on the 16.02.2014 this weekend, together with Tyondai Braxton and Mouse on Mars.
“In C” is one of the famous minimalistic pieces from American composer Terry Riley who wrote the 40-minute piece in 1964. It is considered to be one of the most influential pieces of minimalist compositions and has probably never been played with robots, although minimalist compositions like these which are based on repetitive elements literally begs to be played with robotics!
The event at the Volksbühne is organized by the awesome people from Stargaze who arranged an overwhelming lineup of electronic, pop and classic musicians. Although some shows are already sold out you should not miss this!
