Godfried-Willem Raes - Automaton CD 23134
This album is the first one devoted to musical automats build by one of the worlds most outstanding experimental instrument builders, Godfried-Willem Raes (b. 1952).

Building musical robots has been an ongoing activity in the Logos Labs since the very beginning in the late sixties. It is a logical outflow of our investigations into the development of new tools for musical expression. A mere consequence of the laboratory research into experimental instrument building. The automats documented individually on this CD are all pure acoustical: drums, organpipes, angklungs, shakers, springs… However, these sound sources are exclusively activated by electromechanical means. Controll happens through our own GMT software. Since space available in the booklet with the CD is extremely limited, we could not document each automat in detail, and thus we decided to couple this CD to this fixed link on our website.
