April 30, 2014

This show was presented live at the USA Science & Engineering Festival on April 26 & 27 in Washington, D.C. KMel Robotics presented a team of flying robots that have taken up new instruments to play some fresh songs. The hexrotors create music in new ways, like playing a custom single string guitar hooked up to an electric guitar amp. Drums are hit using a deconstructed piano action. And there are lots of bells.
