Best Robot Music Video Ever!
OK, I'll admit it. I totally geeked out on this new music video. I've always loved listening to music loosely described as 'electronic'. It is a category that is hard to define precisely, and there are many sub-categories or derivations of the genre. For example, electronic dance music (EDM) is wildly popular, and most of it is created electronically with synthesized instruments or utilizes samples of instrument based music to create more comples patterns, rhythms, and melodies. Other forms are classical compositions, but using only synthesizers, rather than traditional instruments. I have pretty eclectic tastes and will listen to just about any type, but usually end up preferring a mixture of synthesis, traditional instruments and voice, and clever mixing to bring it all together. Think Moby.
I came across this video that is the perfect mix - this guy programmed industrial robots to be the musicians and as you will see in the video, as actors. They are playing traditional instruments, and well, you will have to see for yourself... Enjoy!
