This aluminum suitcase houses an electrical relay and three mechanical counters which are activated by robotic arms (servos) creating polyrhythmic musical compositions. The rhythmic algorithms were originally composed by a musician on a computer. At a second stage, these compositions were downloaded onto the suitcase in order to hear a mechanical translation of his performance.

Music by Douglas Geers & Thomas Charveriat
