Live Drum ‘n Bass with Robotic Drums + Modular Synthesizers

The video captures a live performance by New Zealand live drum & bass act, MachineMind.

Controlled by ‘The Conductor’, MachineMind features an array of self-built, self-playing robotic percussion instruments that can play with impossible complexity, speed, and endurance.

In addition to the robotic drumming, MachineMind features live, dynamic processing of the drums, and analog modular synthesizers.

“10 years ago shared my robotic drum ‘n bass setup that your readers seemed to enjoy,” notes Jason from MachineMind. “So I thought I’d submit an update that a decade later, it’s now evolved into a new live show ‘MachineMind’.

Technical Details:

The performance features a rare full AvonSynth modular setup on stage, and a range of new and improved drum robots that are mic’d up and processed in real-time with live DSP through a Kyma system.
