Leonardo Barbadoro - Musica Automata

Ever heard orchestral music performed entirely by robots? Neither had I until I listened to this album from Italian composer Leonardo Barbadoro. Named after its ensemble of robotic performers, Musica Automata, which are controlled remotely by Barbadoro, this pioneering collection of music combines both classical and unconventional instruments to create something I promise you‘ve never heard before. Unique melodies, rhythms and motifs cascade in an unpredictable and experimental way that reflects the boundless opportunities that modern technology enables. Musica Automata challenges the idea that emotionally impactful music is something that only a human can create. LT
