Big Robot is ready to break the barriers of sound and space at a guest artist appearance at the University of Louisville. Big Robot to bring computer-acoustic sound to UofL Big Robot
Big Robot, a computer-acoustic trio composed of classically trained musicians and sound artists Scott Deal, Michael Drews and Jordan Munson, will combine music, art and technology at its concert at 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 25, in Bird Recital Hall at the School of Music.
Reviews have labeled the trio “innovative, weird and wonderful” and called Big Robot’s show “serious mind-bending art.” Integrating live percussion, acoustic sampling, electronic music and real-time video, Big Robot presents music in a multisensory performance beyond that of a traditional concert.
The group, based in Indiana, has performed worldwide since 2009, but this will be the first performance at UofL. The show is free and open to the public.
