Machines replace humans: heavy metal robot 3-piece

"I'm impressed with Compressorhead – the three–piece robot band (three and a half if you count the little robot who drives one of the cymbals). I went to their website to see if I could discern the origins of the project, DIY, corporate, academic, or whatever and couldn't really find anything on the makers. Then I tracked down the drummer. Stickboy was created by Robocross Machines and a whimsical roboticist named Frank Barnes. ... Reminds me of the Survival Research Labs robot machines, built for public performance and disturbance."

Roach: A Marvellous Swirl of Melodies and Rhythms

"An hourlong solo drum performance might sound like a form of slow torture. But with Max Roach behind the drums, the time swings by in a marvellous swirl of melodies and rhythms.

With the variable touch of a great pianist, Roach draws a symphony of tones and timbres from all parts of his drums and cymbals. The master sound painter dazzled and delighted the crowd at the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre on Wednesday night with a series of beautifully developed solos that danced and sang."

(Jesse Hamlin, 1 November 1996, Chronicle Staff Critic)
