After electrifying the world with CYMATICS almost three years ago (watch at the bottom of this article), Ambient and New Age composer Nigel Stanford now made a return with AUTOMATICA. This time, he lets robots perform an entire piece of music and the result is a very powerful symbiosis of technology and creativity.

Without further ado, please enjoy Nigel Stanford’s new track AUTOMATICA below. His new same-named album you can purchase via his website.
