In anticipation of Squarepusher's new idm album Damogen Furies I've discovered a very interesting project of his from last year. He composed an album for the japanese Robot band Z-Machines called Music for Robots which really managed to impress me. I didn't believe that robots could be able to perform emotionally engaging music before but this pretty much convinced me:

I like the idea, Pat Metheny did a similar thing in his Orchestrion album.
By the way, if you think about it, it's not too different from what composers like Conlon Nancarrow and Antheil did

Actually, that's not bad, it's similar to certain genres of jazz-rock fusion I listened to in the eighties, but 'emotionally engaging'? I'm not sure I'd go that far.
Yeah, that expression was a bit exaggerated ... What I wanted to say, though, was that the robot music had more than a mere technical appeal to it in this case.
