Big Robot Ensemble. The Indianapolis-based trio Big Robot creates live, video-enriched art and music, interweaving aesthetic expression with computer interactivity and networked technology. With integration of audio/video design, live percussion, and electronics, the group creates a multi-dimensional performance that explores the cross points of virtual and physical gesture, sound, and space. Big Robot employs interactive processes such as motion tracking, acoustic instrument sampling, audio processing, integration of real-time video, and the use of telecommunications software/devices. The group began in 2007 when Scott Deal, Michael Drews, and Jordan Munson, each newly relocated to Indianapolis Indiana, met and began building ideas based on their artistic interests. While each member of the group plays a unique role, together they possess very similar musical influences of rock, jazz, electronic, and new music that has shaped the artistic viewpoint of the group.
Big Robot performs in live venues as well as telematically over research-grade, high-bandwidth Internet from their studio. The group has presented concerts and residencies throughout the United States since 2009. Their self-titled debut DVD was released in June 2013. Big Robot is a collection of works composed by the group that integrates music and videography with computer interactivity.
