Robot Clarinetist Wins Music Competition

I promise you, you’ve never heard Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee performed this fast. And you’ve probably never heard it played by a robot. 

This master clarinetist was built by NICTA, and won first prize at the Artemis Orchestra Competition, “honoring scientists who could best lash together computers, machines, and musical instruments.”
