This video captures a performance of Calum Scott's GuitarGlitch project, which features guitar music robots that play glitch music.
Scott explains the technology behind his guitar robots:
The solenoids are all 12v (from rs-online.com) and are connected to an Arduino Duemilanove board (arduino.cc) and the power supplies with a TIP120 transistor circuit similar to this. The leds are on the same pins as the solenoids.
The code running on the Arduino is SimpleMessageSystem which is then controlled from Max/Msp. There are also 2 6v dc motors on the headsocks which are from a mechano set and are controlled by a Miditron board (eroktronix.com).
GuitarGlitch is part of Scott's masters portfolio for Glasgow University music department.
Girts shows off some of the new Erica Synths range, including the Graphic VCO, Black DSP 2 and the Resonant Filter
