The KarmetiK Machine Orchestra brings together custom-built robotic musical instruments and human performers with modified instruments, unique musical interfaces, and hemispherical speaker-pods. The ensemble combines KarmetiK's international lineup of artists and musicians with students in the Music Technology & Technical Direction programs at the California Institute of the Arts. The KarmetiK Machine Orchestra premiered on January 27th 2010 at the REDCAT Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles, co-directed by music director Ajay Kapur and production director Michael Darling.

I was fortunate enough to work with the Machine Orchestra as both a musician, and as a robotic instrument creator.
