Z-MACHINES: Robot Band by DJ TASAKA
Really cool robots rocking out via
Z-Machines, an all robot trio, have made their live debut in Tokyo.
Supervised by Japanese artists and creators, Z-Machines were developed to realise the cutting edge party scene by featuring the guitarist robot with 78 fingers and 12 picks.
The drummer robot with 21 sticks and a keyboard player robot that can flash multi-layered beams from its eyes, enabling ‘transcendental music performance’.
The robot trio played to around 100 people, and were accompanied on stage by Japanese singers Amo and Ayamo of girl duo AMOYAMO.
The band’s creators, from Tokyo University, hope one day that the band will play in space – maybe even gigging on the moon.
