World’s First LEGO Robot Band Covers Depeche Mode

In this video, the Toa Mata Band, aka as the World’s first LEGO robotic band, covers Depeche Mode’s Everything Counts.

Technical Details:

The robotic band is controlled by Arduino Uno, which is hooked up to a MIDI sequencer. The robots are playing some unconventional percussion instruments, made with some food packaging, captured by a contact microphone (piezo) and processed in real time in Ableton Live.

A brand new device appears for the first time, it’s a moving platform on x-axis, made of Lego bricks, gears and servo motors that permit it to move the tiny synth in semitone-steps.

Performed by Giuseppe Acito & the Toa Mata Band.
