LEGO Robot Depeche Mode

LEGO, Robots and a Depeche Mode song. Obviously I love this. It amazes me all the work that went into recreating Everything Counts in such a way. I hope someone in NYC books the Toa Mata Band band because I would love to see it in person.

“Toa Mata Band is known as the World’s first LEGO robotic band controlled by Arduino Uno which is hooked up to a MIDI sequencer. In this video, the third episode, the robots are playing some unconventional drum-percussions made by some food packaging are captured by a contact microphone (piezo) and processed in real time in the D.A.W. 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 permits to move with semitones-steps the tiny synth. The song is a cover of the famous synth-pop band Depeche Mode, it’s a personal tribute to the band who made my days in the 80’s. The performance was recorded live in July 2014.” – Opificio Sonico
