A Musical Framework with Swarming Robots
In this paper, we describe an approach to a musical framework with interactions among numerous physical autonomous devices. The devices behave as metaphors of life and self-organize sounds and rhythm. Users can manipulate the system by affecting the interactions of the devices. We implemented the system as two different installations.
