Robot Drummers and Patrick Flanagan of Jazari

Patrick Flanagan Jazari Robot Band

Cyborg percussion ensemble Jazari was created by “token human” Patrick Flanagan. He made a kind of robot drum circle that beats on acoustic bongos, cowbells, a djembe, and more. In episode 32 of Composer Quest, Patrick talks with me about his robot band, his day job creating musical iPhone apps, and his reasons for leaving the academic composing world to create dance music.
