ZOMBIE MUSIC

YASUNO Taro

Media performance [Japan]

The music in this work is the automated, self-created sound made by a robot blowing air into a recorder with an air compressor. There are propositions that question how close machines can get to being human. But the machine in this work does not perform like a person and for this reason, we cannot properly call it a robot. The machine (zombie) points to the antithesis of living humanity (i.e., death), performing this ZOMBIE MUSIC.
