Absolut Quartet

Absolut Quartet, an interactive multi-instrumental robotic machine, consists of a marimba played by rubber balls precisely shot from a robotic cannon, a series of spinning wineglasses dampened by robotic fingers and an array of percussive instruments.

The upshot is an electromechanical sculpture that fuses art, technology and interactivity. Completing the Quartet, users from around the world are able to interact with the machine online by inputting a short musical snippet on a simple keyboard. The machine then processes this information and responds with a unique musical composition which is live streamed at Absolut Machines.
