ABOUT TOA MATA BAND

The Toa Mata Band, created in 2013 by the Italian sound designer and music producer Giuseppe Acito, is known as the first LEGO® music robots orchestra, made of vintage Bionicle figures. Each band member is built using LEGO Bionicle pieces, a system of electric motors, rubber bands, and pulleys connected to the figure’s arms which allow them to play a rig of different touchable synthesizers, drum machines, smartphones, and acoustic percussions.

Toa Mata Band was featured on some of the most respected webzines about music, innovation technologies, and art including Wired, The Creators Project, Arduino, Make Magazine, Discovery News, Mixmag, FACT Magazine, Elecronicbeats, DJ MAG, RollingStone, and many more.

LIVE PERFORMANCE

A Toa Mata Band performance consists of 50 minutes of massive live robotics playing organic electronic music and A/V contents, live cameras on screen, and video graphics. The sound is a blend of electro, big beat, and glitchy downtempo, mainly inspired by the classics of electronic music ranging from the ’80s to today.

In the last 6 years, Toa Mata Band performed live in more than 80 events around Europe, including Electron (Geneva), Robot Festival (Bologna), Cafe neu Romance (Prague), Maker Faire (Rome, Jerusalem), Sziget Festival (Budapest), Music Tech Fest (Berlin), Medimex (Bari), RoboPOP night (Basel), ADC Festival (Hamburg) and the opening-act for 2manyDJs and Chemical Brothers.
