Nigel Stanford’s Groundbreaking “Automatica” Album Features Robot Performers

Musician and engineer Nigel Stanford has released the new album entitled “Automatica” – although the music was written by Nigel, a large part of it is actually played by programmed robotic assistants. It was only in the last decade that we taught Asimo to run and climb stairs, and Boston Dynamics robots are just now gaining confidence in their ability to traverse difficult terrain or carry boxes, so to see such delicate accuracy be displayed here is pretty damn impressive (and a little bit scary).

The full album is available on Nigel’s website, and you can check out the music video as well as the behind the scenes below.
