Cybraphon - Glasgow bound
Edinburgh band FOUND's autonomous music machine caused quite a stir at last year's Edinburgh Festival. With the ability to create music without any human interaction and with its moods being controlled by close monitoring of the World Wide Web, the Cybraphon even picked up a BAFTA.
The band thought that Cybraphon should take a well earned rest after the BAFTA win but it has now been reawakened. A series of guest composers are working away at material for the machine to perform and from Friday 16th April, Glasgow's SWG3 will be its temporary new home.
If you missed Cybraphon's Edinburgh debut last year, we highly recommend you head along to SWG3 for a look (entry is free). For a taster of what to expect - here's "Triste Tryst - a tango for Cybraphon by Bernd Rest" and you can head over to the the "How" section on Cybraphon's official site for more info on the workings of the machine.
