I work with industrial robots that I divert to integrate them into show installations. I have been doing this since 2010. I am also a musician (traditional music) and I am very interested in the idea of playing music with robots. I work notably on a violinist robot then also on a percussionist 🙂
Project Name: Industrial Robot violinist
This project is part of a more global industrial robot diversion project. Jean-Marie is a robotics engineer and he recovers old industrial robots to convert them into artistic projects. His most famous project is called “Le Bistromatik”. It is an industrial robot (Nestor) which has been fixed on a mobile platform transformed into a bistro where the robot plays the role of bartender. The violinist robot project is an artistic performance proposed in this bistro.
