ROBOTIC ELECTRONIC MUSIC
As a sound artist and robotics engineer, Moritz Simon Geist runs workshops in which the participants get insights into the sound creation of small robotic systems and mechanics. The field of Robotic Electronic Music is a futuristic and visual way of producing music combining the craft of DIY Instrument design with the love for electronic music, techno, and sound art. All the sounds that are usually produced by computers or synthesizers are instead created by physical objects: drums, metallic objects, motors, relays, and robotic devices. This introduces an error and nearly human touch into the musical structures, at the same time retaining the repetitive structures that can only be achieved with machines. In an explanatory hands-on setting, the participants are asked to create sounds, samples, produce and experiment with the given instrumentation.
