    I wrote a duet for 8 string guitar and robotic marimba. The robot is named Shimon and it lives at the Georgia Tech Center for Music Technology.

    I figured this was the perfect opportunity to bust out the unnecessarily complex polyrhythms. 7/8 on the high note, 5/4 on the guitar, and chords in 9+9+9+8/8. And that's just the A section.

    Also featuring an improvised robotic solo.

    Excuse the quality, audio and video was recorded on my iPhone.

    Was it intentional that that the pattern of the first note happens to sound like YYZ?

    Thank everyone, had a busy weekend at a synth competition and just saw all these wonderful comments!

    I'm planning on continuing working on this piece over the next few weeks so there will hopefully be a more fleshed out version of this by the summer!

    You sure your strap couldn't be a little shorter?
