RoboRecital to be held at Julliard on Nov. 30

Posted 28 Nov 2004 at 20:24 UTC by steve Share This

Composer J. Brendan Adamson has prepared a concert, called RoboRecital, to be performed by robotic instruments including GuitarBot, a self-playing electric slide guitar, an automated 57 rank Holtkamp pipe organ, and a Yamaha Disklavier. Six of Brendan's own pieces will be presented alongside works by Bach and Mozart. His transcription of J. S. Bach's Die Kunst der Fuge, BWV 1080, Contrapuncti Nos. 2 and 3 will be performed by GuitarBot. W. A. Mozart's Allegro und Andante (Fantasia in F Minor, K.608) will be heard on pipe organ, controlled by computer. Note that the Mozart piece was originally written for a self-playing organ, so this performance is arguably closer to what Mozart intended than most human performances. For more, see the RoboRecital flyer (PDF format) or the recent Julliard Journal Online article. The event will be in Julliard's Pall Hall on Tuesday, Nov 30th and is free; no tickets are required.
