Aaron Taylor Kuffner’s Gamelatron is a sonic, kinetic, site-specific sculpture like no other! Based on the thousand-year-old Indonesian musical tradition of the gamelan, the Gamelatron is made of handmade brass and iron instruments retrofitted with automated mallets and digital musical compositions. The result is an ethereal, resonant, and entirely unique sonic experience that blurs the line between ancient and modern, art and body.
