P.A.M. Band (Partially Automated Musicians)


The P.A.M Band is a set of automated instruments hooked up to a set of computers and then triggered to perform music live. In basic concept it is doing what all of our software instruments and sequencers do, but the cool part here is the design and implementation of the mechanical components to trigger the real live instruments. The end result is a really cool setup, that I think is reminiscent of the old one man bands you used to see in cartoons.

Performance information and dates, as well as audio examples can be found on the website.
