Burstbot will be substantially more compliant and stable than current robots, and will take advantage of new developments in materials, fabrication technologies, sensors and actuators. Applications will include autonomous or semi-autonomous tasks such as composing music and make human interaction at a larger scale.
Burstbot was originated by Marco Fierro, Mexico City-based musician, art director, designer and photographer.
Burstbot is all about been amazed by life itself and try to translate it into music. Although the project initially started as a computer based music project now Marco's main goal is to explore permanently on sound and music: this includes making music with diverse traditional and new instruments, field recordings and computer software and/or hardware.
For the last 25 years Marco has been playing through a myriad genre shifts and musical accomplices. He has been making music by playing drums with grindcore, death metal and punk bands most of the 90's. Then in this new century he got interested into free improvisation, drone, noise and ambient by starting to experiment. He taught himself to play synthesizer, making it his main instrument.
