Moritz Simon Geist - Making Techno with Music Robots
"Classically trained media artist and robotic musician Moritz Simon Geist just premiered the video for “Entropy” the lead single from his upcoming debut EP “The Material Turn“, out October 12 on his newly formed label “Sonic Robots Records” with global distribution via Kompakt. The EP precedes the release of Geist’s full length album, “Robotic Electronic Music“, on November 16. The EP and LP, both co-produced with Mouse on Mars, will be the first techno records played entirely by self-made futuristic robots.
As the core piece to his 4 track-EP, the visual for “Entropy” chronicles the process of building a deep techno track from scratch with Geist’s motorized hand made instruments referred to as his ‘Sonic Robots’. Using 3D-printed robo-kalimbas, tonal glasses, drone guitar, recycled hard drives, and pneumatic hi-hats, Moritz gradually creates a bassy, staccato club track. As the rave-ready track becomes more layered, the room becomes increasingly filled with musical machines until the track peaks."
Now watch Simon and his 'robots' in action, and prepare to be impressed! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHrCkyoe72U
