Here are some excerpts from the live concert in the Postcity/Gleishalle of Ars Electronica 2018.
Realtime visualisations were shown on 6 large screens.
In the part with the dancers the robot was pre-programmed according to the choreography of Silke Grabinger (Robot-programming was done bei Johannes Braumann and Peter Freudling)
In the 3rd movement and in the special percussion intermezzo the robot was directly controlled by the music of the orchestra. The robot was continuously sending data about his position back to the computer to control the movements of the moving-head-lights and also to the graphic-computer to control and synchronize the position of the visuals on the screen. —> here is more about this Robo-Solo.
