Guitar Playing Robot Performs American Music #ArduinoMonday #MusicMonday

via Dustyn Robots

This project is being developed in collaboration with artists Ashley Pigford and Troy Richards. Inspired by a statement written on Woody Guthrie’s guitar, This Machine Kills Fascists (TMKF) is a guitar-playing robot that performs traditional American folk music on a portable stage. Sheet music with the song lyrics are printed and left on the benches set up in front of the stage and audience members are encouraged to sing along to the music.

How can we come together in ways that express a shared experience of community and mutual sympathy? Our music, much like our lived experience, is filtered through technology and is often isolating. TMKF presents a kind of homespun spectacle that can draw the attention of a skeptical public and entice them to come together and learn/sing these songs that are woven into our collective DNA.
