Nigel Stanford Plays Along with Robots in new Music Video #MusicMonday

Check out this awesome new video bringing a new meaning to “electronic” music. Via C-Net:

Stanford spent a month in his garage teaching mechanical arms to work piano keys, wield guitar picks and drumsticks and press percussion foot pedals. He taught them well. The head-banging bots are so confident, that by the end of the new video for the album’s title song, they rebel against their human collaborator, tossing and smashing their instruments and firing lasers to bring down the warehouse where they’re rocking the electronica.

Stanford, a lifelong musician born and raised in New Zealand, has long been fascinated by the intersection of music and science. The robots in the video come from Kuka Robotics, a Germany-based manufacturer of industrial robotic systems. But he insisted on doing all the engineering himself.

“I think it’s important to come at the scientific aspects from the perspective of a musician,” says Stanford, whose music has been used by NASA and the European Space Agency.
