Cycle 06 Alt-w Production Award -
FOUND
Ziggy Campbell, Simon Kirby and Tommy Perman

Daily 10am-5pm.
National Museum of Scotland, Chambers St, Edinburgh

Cybraphon, the autonomous emotional robot band, is now part of the National Museum of Scotland's collection. The artist collective FOUND gifted Cybraphon to the nation in 2013. It can now be seen as a key bridging work between the new art & design and science & technology galleries.

Cybraphon obsessively googles itself every 15 seconds to see how popular it is. The results affect its emotional state which in turn affects its playing style. Twenty-five antique instruments and 60 robotic actuators then play music that FOUND has composed for each emotion.
