Could an antique wardrobe full of mechanised acoustic instruments be about to give Indie pop bands a run for their money? The musicians behind Cybraphon certainly hope so.
Inspired by early 19th century mechanical bands such as the nickelodeon, Cybraphon is an interactive version of a mechanical band in a box.
Consisting of a series of robotic instruments housed in a large display case, Cybraphon behaves like a real band. Image conscious and emotional, the bands performance is affected by online community opinion as it searches the web for reviews and comments about itself 24 hours a day.
