Telematic Drum Circle is an interdisciplinary art project combining telecommunications, robotics, human-computer interaction, and improvisational music. The project allows online users around the world to create a live collective sound improvisation by controlling 16 robotic percussion instruments via the internet. By tapping the computer keyboard while viewing the web site, online users can remotely play the robotic instruments together while watching a live streaming webcast of their ensemble.
