Review: We Are Robots (@WEAREROBOTSOTB) | Future & Innovation Of Music


We Are Robots is a brand-new music fest­iv­al that explores the future of tech­no­logy and sound. Tak­ing place at the Old Tru­man Brew­ery in East Lon­don, the fest­iv­al hosts work­shops on cut­ting-edge tech­no­logy and fea­tures innov­at­ive and exper­i­en­tial sound install­a­tions. Run­ning from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th Novem­ber, We Are Robots brings a ter­rif­ic line-up of musi­cians, sound artists, engin­eers and sci­ent­ists to dis­cuss and show­case their work in music innov­a­tion.


Vis­it­ors are treated to mind-blow­ing inter­act­ive spec­tacles, such as Alive in Tech­no­logy, a cap­tiv­at­ing vir­tu­al real­ity install­a­tion in which par­ti­cipants can don VR head­sets and per­form and mix music. Oth­er high­lights include the Aug­men­ted Instru­ments Labor­at­ory and Bela, which use audio and sensor pro­cessing to push the bound­ar­ies of what is pos­sible for musi­cians, com­posers and instru­ment design­ers. Hack­oustic present a won­der­ful “acous­tic hack­ing work­shop” which is a com­bin­a­tion of Rube Gold­berg machines and repur­posed ordin­ary items to exper­i­ment with sound.

If you’re intrigued by futur­ism, live music and meet­ing a robot that makes rather strong tequila (ser­i­ously), then We Are Robots prom­ises to fas­cin­ate and enter­tain.
