League of Electronic Musical Urban Robots

(LEMUR) presents its first concert series consisting entirely of works commissioned for LEMUR's musical robots. Titled "Robosonic Eclectic: Live Music by Robots and Humans," the program will be performed during a three-night run, from Thursday May 31 through Saturday June 2, 2007, each night with a start time of 8 pm. The series will take place at the Mainstage Theatre at the 3-Legged Dog Art and Technology Center.

Four commissioned works, each with a live performance component, serve as the backbone of the evening, alternating with other works that the robots will perform solo. Composer/performers for the live commissioned pieces are John Flansburgh and John Linnell (They Might Be Giants), JG Thirlwell (Foetus), George Lewis, and Morton Subotnick. Pieces for solo robots by R. Luke DuBois and J. Brendan Adamson will also be performed by the robot ensemble.

"Robosonic Eclectic: Live Music by Robots and Humans" plays May 31, June 1, and June 2 at 3-Legged Dog Art and Technology Center. Tickets are $20 and available online now from Brown Paper Tickets.
