Today's Web Picks: LEMUR and AV Grandpa

League of Electronic Musical Urban Robots.

Mmmmm.. That's a name you can go to the bank on!

What it is: "Founded in 2000 by musician and engineer Eric Singer, LEMUR's philosophy is to build robotic instruments that "play themselves." In LEMUR designs, the robots are the instruments."

Listen to an mp3 of Lemur here . I like it. There's something...I dunno..."Kicky-Garage Band-Meets-Reich"

On the other hand, I must confess that the Lemurs have done nothing to efface my affection for "The Avant-Garde Grandpa". Who sounds a little like Brak. Listen to Avant-Garde Grandpa perform his "Tribute to Beethoven" (mp3 file. Check out the quotation in the L.H. from a Chopin polonaise. Happy music making).

Watch the Lemurs perform here
