|Event Summary: ||Musical Robots have to play a musical instrument. It can be any kind of instrucment, but the robot/computer has to play it.
This doesn't have to be a traditional instrument, but it can't be a midi device with speakers. Beyond a start button or musical selection, the instrumentation cannot be played by humans.
This competition will be scored based on:
- Creativity - Is the instrument and the way it's played unique?
- Quality of Sound - Does it have soul, or is it flat?
- Diversity of Sound - Are there harmonics and a wide range of notes?
Three judges will score the aesthetics and style categories on a scale of 1 to 10. Their scores will be added together and averaged.
