Katerina Undo – The Creatures orchestra ‘Unplugged’
07/12/2012 - 20:30

Katerina Undo is developing light sensitive miniature robots, the ‘Creatures’ that live autonomously, getting energy from solar cells and generating a large variety of sounds depending on the amount of light that touches their solar surfaces. The Creatures are built with two electronic analogue circuits, the ‘suneater’ and the ‘solar sound module’. It is impossible to build exact equal modules, so each creature is unique with a particular character, name and role.


Instead of amplifying the Creature’s volume, the Human hearing will be amplified, naturally, through the use of ‘telescopic ears’: acoustic horns applied to ears that give both acoustic gain and directionality, increasing the observer’s hearing ability.


The Creatures orchestra synthesis developed during the Q-O2 residency is counting 20 members.
Group 1: Roundy, Brigitte, Frixos, Patty, Bobos.

Group 2: Be-twin, Petros, Tiny, Monsterito, Monsterita, Hercules.

Group 3: Frida, Frank (duet).

Soloist: Patrik.

Percussionists: Tiko (solo), Barby, Frederico, Clark, Zosefita, Spiros.
