Techno Robots

DanceSignal, Written on Wednesday, September 19 2018


The first techno record played entirely by robots has been made by the award-winning engineer and media artist Moritz Simon Geist, AKA Sonic Robots.

In a fittingly logical fashion, the full album is entitled 'Robotic Electronic Music' and has been produced by Andi Thoma of decade-spanning electronic outfit Mouse On Mars. It's slated for release on 16th November, with a preceding EP dropping in October.

Geist, who is German, may be familiar to some thanks to his performances during production showcase events like Mutek, CTM, and Moogfest, and won the Visual Music and Initiative Music awards in 2017 and 2017-18 respectively.
