Craig Scott's Lobotomy : RoboUke Prototype Improvisations
RoboUke Prototype Improvisations [ ★ ★ ]
Man/Machine Duet on a Ukeulele prepared with MIDI controlled solenoids.
None A Prototype for a new series of semi-autonomous acoustic instruments designed to be played simultaneously by humans and machines.

Whilst reflecting our adaptation to our increasingly automated physical environment, I intend for this project to also prise open new approaches to composition and improvisation by re-contextualising familiar instruments.

★ John Jaeger : An improvised duet with man and machine is a super interesting idea. The thing is I still can't get this song out of my head. It's a music fest and this was my favorite piece of music.

Craig Scott's Lobotomy : Composer/Maker
The maker Craig Scott's Lobotomy
London, UK
I am a composer, improvising guitarist and instrument designer. I compose music for human and non-human performers focusing on the disquieting tension that exists between human and machine made music.
Working with human performers, robotics, custom built digital/analog hardware to explore the uncanny valley in sound. Blurring the lines between the perception of organic and artificial,composition and improvisation and intention and error.


“In a class of his own when it comes to creating wildly inventive music”
Gary Lucas (Capitan Beefheart /Jeff Buckley)
It's everything new music can and should be...a wake-up call for the ears...A superbly executed tour de force that leaves audiences shunting between fits of laughter and jaw-dropping wonder.
Steve Mead, Artistic Director, Manchester jazz festival

This is a moderately extraordinary record...To say unique in this case would be proper...The silly name aside, it’s not messing about.
Chris Cutler ( Henry Cow/Art Bears/RER records)
