HEAR IT | The Robotic Orchestra That Plays Traditional Indonesian Music
We've curated the best swipe-stopping content inspired by digital age creativity to help you stay relevant.
NYC based conceptual artist Aaron Taylor Kuffner has "remixed" centuries of Indonesian musical heritage with the Gamelatron, a robotized ensemble of gongs, vibraphones, and drums. Taking inspiration from both ancient tradition and new age innovation, Kuffner's installations create a visceral and kinetic musical experience. More importantly the Gamelatron Project blends the new and the old, re-contextualizing history and broadening our cultural perspective. It's not just music, and not just an art installation. It's the marriage of beautiful design and peaceful sounds that makes us want a Gamelatron.
