Robot Music: Live In New York

So you want that big sound of many people making music at the same time but just don't have enough friends who bang drums?  Just invite some robots over and start jamming.

If you need some tips from the robo-masters, Mike Hearst. (featured below) is going to be performing LIVE at Here (145 6th Ave. NY, NY (between Spring & Broome, enter on Dominick) in NYC next weekend. For Tickets & Information: www.here.org or call 212-352-3101 

Songs about ice cream trucks and unusual animals being played on funny instruments (tuba, theramin, stylophone, claviola) and accompanied by a batallion of self-playing musical instruments, ie: musical robots. It's a very happy experience.

For this event Michael Hearst will perform a selection of new compositions inspired by some of the lesser known animals that roam the planet. From the Australian Bilby, to the deep-sea Magnopinna Squid, the songs will be brought to life by Michael Hearst (One Ring Zero / Songs For Ice Cream Trucks) on theremin and claviola, Ron Caswell (Slavic Soul Party) on Tuba, Ben Holmes (One Ring Zero) trumpet and flugelhorn, and Allyssa Lamb (Las Rubias Del Norte) on keyboard, plus a gaggle of musical instrument robots provided by LEMUR.
