In this classic piece of performance art and musicianship from Nigel Stanford. Nigel programs high-tech production robots to play there part in the repetitive beats of Automatica. The results are quite visionary as we are thrown into a thought loop of the future. Robots Vs. Music.

The deeper meaning of Man .vs. Machine, is also a recurring theme. The video gives us more than one answer, opening up a thought that that even though the precision of robotics can be hypnotic and melodic, the robots themselves will always require programming by the human operator.

Automicia is available as a film and as a track on the album Automatica from his website or from Apple iTunes.
