Here’s something I haven’t seen done with Legos yet–particularly the Lego Bionicles!
Sound producer and designer Giuseppe Acito harnesses the Nord Beat app, hooking each Lego Bionicle figure up to his iPad and controlling them with the MIDI sequencer. The Legos-turned-robots can then play pre-programmed songs or play live shows with Acito DJing through Nord Beat’s sequencer in real time.
Acito calls the resulting robot Lego group the Tao Mata Band. Instruments include synthesizers, xylophone chimes, drum machines, and handheld video game devices.
It’s bio-digital jazz, man.
