EMMI designs, builds and composes music for robotic instruments. We’ve
created and begun composing for our first instruments, Poly-tangent
Automatic (multi-)Monochord (PAM) and Multi-mallet Automatic Drumming
Instrument (MADI), and we have a number of other complementary
instruments on the way.
Founded in 2005 by saxophonist Michael Straus and bassoonist Dana
Jessen, the EAR (Electro Acoustic Reed) Duo is dedicated to the
performance of new, improvised and experimental electroacoustic music.
The EAR Duo is currently engaged in commissioning a series of
interactive wind, string and percussion robots from EMMI (Expressive
Machines Musical Instruments) for performances next year.
