The robot will return to this hot car to perform live at DATASTORM this weekend. It's a demoparty, and I'm actually part of the organizer crew. This year we'll have some pretty legendary people talking about their work. Budbrain talks about their megademos, Triad talks about Red Storm, and Mahoney (and maybe Kaktus) talks about Sounds of Gnome. Not bad huh? Yeah and then there's all the other great things going on. Tickets still available!
Truckstop Alaska is one of the best venues in Gothenburg, as those who have been to DATASTORM know. But they've been harassed by police and other authorities lately, so come and show your support! I will play live, sort of. The robot will do the playing, but with my music. Eh so, I will be played live?
Oh and btw, tickets for DATASTORM is out on Wednesday. I'm in the organizer team this year too, and I know you will be disappointed if you miss out.
The robot's first song is included in the compilation Warm Data, released by Bit Rot. The robot's song is pretty chill, but otherwise this compilation is for you who like it a bit rougher and more abstract. Includes artists such as Joss Manley, Irrlicht Project, tMT and Raquel Meyers. There's not just music but also programs and videos, so go n' get it now.
Enjoy some more proper documentation of robot music. First out is Dr.Step (from Floptrik) that was performed at Algomech last year (second video). Afrikstep was also performed there, but hasn't been properly released yet. The fourth video is a more chilled clip from our first sessions with the robot at Illutron in the summer of 2017.
Video of my performance with the robot at Truckstop Alaska last night. You can see how the robot plays the C64 as a piano using Cynthcart, and it also composed its own melodies in defMON.
