Italian Composer Writes For and Conducts Robotic Orchestra

(Engineering.com) Leonardo Barbadoro records music under the name Koolmorf Widesen, and the performers in his orchestra are robots. His collection of robotic instruments contains organs, percussion, strings, wind instruments and a broad ‘other’ category.
Barbadoro says that using robots to play the music preserves the fidelity of the sound and robotic precision can sometimes bring out different possibilities for a performance. Using all of the robots in the same space also allows for the same acoustic impact, sometimes lost when a performer uses electronic estimations.
