An Evening with Todd Reynolds & LEMUR
Todd Reynolds, composer, conductor, arranger and violinist, is a longtime member of Bang On A Can, Steve Reich and Musicians and Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Project . His commitment to genre-bending and technology-driven innovation in music has produced innumerable collaborations with artists that regularly cross musical and disciplinary boundaries.
Tonight he collaborates with LEMUR, a group of artists and technologists developing and performing with robotic musical instruments. Founded by musician and engineer Eric Singer, LEMUR creates unique, exotic, sculptural instruments that integrate robotic technology into live performances. Its philosophy is to build robots that are new kinds of instruments—as opposed to robots that play already-existing instruments.
