This musician’s new album was made by industrial robots

Nigel Stanford is a New Zealand musician who creates sound experiments using mechanics and technology. His new album, Automatica, was made by two thin orange boys: industrial robots.

For each instrument, Stanford manipulated the robots slightly to help them play. When the robots play the bass, the one near the body of the instrument is equipped with a guitar pick. When they play the drums, each robot is gripping a drumstick, except for the one playing the bass drum.

In the video above, you can watch as Stanford plays notes on the bass, keyboard, and sends that information to his band of loyal robots. Below, you can watch a behind-the-scenes look at his setup.
