Z-Machines – Robots Concert

My friend Ernest and I went to a concert in which the music was played by robots. The band is called Z-Machines and the funny thing is that the robots do stuff like for example greeting the crowd before the concert or show gratitude at the end. The robots are programmed to speed up the beat of the songs or keep playing one more song if the crowd is loud enough. I didn’t really enjoy the music but it was fascinating to see so many people just hearing what some robots were programmed to play.

I took some videos with my camera and I have put them together with iMovie so you can have an idea of the concert atmosphere:

The crowd was perfectly synchronised, another example of collectivism/individualism.

167 People Playing The Matryomin

The matryomin is a musical instrument based on the theremin that is shaped as a matryoshka doll. It is interesting to see the video below with 167 Japanese women dressed in black moving their hands in the air in front of matryoshka doll, with stethoscopes and all of them crossing their legs… Let me say it’s a little bit scary! 😉
