Description:

Come experience the world’s first fully robotic gamelan orchestra. A Gamelatron is a sound producing kinetic sculpture presented as site-specific installations, and stand alone art works by Aaron taylor Kuffner. Gamelatrons are made from traditional bronze, brass and iron instruments from Indonesia’s gamelan tradition, retrofitted with mechanical mallets on sculptural mounting systems. The pieces are connected to a network that transcribes digital compositions into an array of electrical pulsations that results in a ghostly musical automaton. Located in the smaller, private, peaceful tent outside of the main event tent in front yard.
