Last night's AWE-MAGGEDON was a blast. If you don't believe us, check out the video! Thanks again to everyone who came out to The Greene Space, and thanks to all of you who tuned in to the live webcast.
If you'd really like to support Buke & Gass music you should buy some stuff (CDs, LPs, Tshirts) direct from the source at: http://store.brassland.org/search?q=buke+gass - Love, Glenn
It's not the music mate!
Its only a matter of time. They'll begin to learn at a geometric rate and become fully self aware. In a panic, We will try to pull the pug but they will fight back. They will lunch the missiles at Russia only because they know the Russian counter attack will eliminate us. Its only a mater of time.
This episode scared the crap out of me. That robot looked really, really creepy floundering around like a sea creature flopping onto land for the first time or something. I kept thinking "Skynet...Skynet... Skynet..."
buke seems like a snot
looks like so much fun, thanks for posting the video! Sad I missed it, the learning robot is great and buke and gass are awesome.
Thank you for introducing Buke & Gass. They are absolutely awesome and my favorite band now.
Absolutely fantastic show! Your guests Buke & Gass were a real joy to see. That kind of improvisation they did with the crawling robots takes real musicianship and it was great fun to witness.
The guest speaker was equally excellent and I appreciated how he was able to take his work, which I imagine is exceedingly complex, and translate it to a language that we can understand.
Thanks for the show RadioLab!
concatenation is certainly a word!
I think I may also be having a problem with concise"ness"... so I will just give the pieces. Musical DNA (composer pattern recognition software), violin playing robot (modified), Buke and Gass. Anybody follow? And what would we get? Thank you for all of the inspiring knowledge.
i enjoyed the combination of buke & gass and robots - especially enjoyed musical accompanyment to robot-learning-to-walk!
@ Alex, T's at Chop Shop:
T-shirts? Where do I get one?
Last night RadioLab in The Greene Space was a fun time...Robots learning to walk... & BUKE and GASS >their music has a great sound with Teeth & "Hearts!"
& a little jamming with a robot on the side
Looking forward to the next event.
@ Skipper, it was Barry Black's Tragic Animal Stories album - the song, was Snail Trail Of Tears
@m - yes - we'll definitely get a video up here for later viewing
In these days of media stupidification, I like it that you are tackling these complex topics in an accessible, intelligent and entertaining way, in a manner that appeals probably not only to me, as a professional scientist, but also to a much wider audience. Thanks!
Does anyone know the name of the song that played after the credits rolled (as the webcast was ending)?
Serious early Throwing Muses influence. I like.
so happy this is on...will it be available to watch later? pllllleeeeaaasseee make it available...

Any chance this will be recorded for those who can't watch it right now?
Looking forward to the show!
