Ensemble Robot

From their website : “With “Ensemble Robot,” we aspire not only to produce uniquely beautiful and intriguing music for a multitude of audiences in the New England region, but additionally to instruct and inspire would-be artists and engineers at schools, museums and other public forums throughout the Boston and greater New England area. We believe that “Ensemble Robot” will serve to bring together the often-independent artist and engineer communities and stimulate cross-discipline dialogue”.

THE WHIRLYBOT, aka the ROBOCOPTER, is their newest robot, designed and built by Andy Cavatorta, Erik Nugent, and Bill Tremblay, in 2006. With seven tuned whirlies spinning at different speeds controlled by MIDI, the Whirlybot has a range of 2 octaves and sounds like a chorus of voices.
