RoboDrummer – A Case Study: Implications of the musical expression of an electromechanical drumming machine

Abstract [en]

In search for a new musical expression, the author’s own creation; RoboDrummer (RD)

– a newly invented, MIDI-controlled electromechanical, drumming machine – is closely

analyzed in terms of sound, time and interaction, and then compared to its precursors;

the human drummer, the drum machine & other robotic drummers. Although far from a

robotic virtuoso, the findings show in what unique ways RD both de-humanizes the

human drum performance and humanizes, as well as embodies, the virtual drum

machine. Potential musical applications and technical improvements are suggested to

further develop RD into a more engaging and futuristic live performance.
