The lobby at 55 Washington was a perfect setting for the accordion robot, with its brushed steel walls and blue neon.
Motherboard tv was kind enough to ask me to make a music machine for them. Here’s their video of the process!
It’s still not quite ready for full-time operation, but now we can crank it up on special occasions!

I made a little sound sculpture – a sort of wind-powered banjo – for this weekend’s Figment Festival on Governors Island. Here it is installed on the island’s waterfront by Castle Williams, with a spectacular view of downtown Manhattan. (If you’re in the New York area, come to the festival this weekend – it’s free, and there’s eight million things to see.)
And here’s a video from when I was testing it on my deck.
Update: here’s video from the festival itself.
