Unscramble the Blue Letters

Being a musician is not just about miknag notes, otherwise nobody would ever go see a live show. Musicians also communicate with their boedis, with other band members, with the audience, they use their bodies to esxrpes the music. And I thought, we already have a rboot musician on stage, why not make it be a full-fledged musician? And I started deginisng a socially expressive head for the robot. The head doesn’t actually touch the marimba, it just epsresexs what the music is like. These are some napkin sketches from a bar in Atlanta that was dangerously located exactly halfway between my lab and my home. So I spent, I would say, on average, three to four hours a day there. I think.

Original Text

Being a musician is not just about making notes, otherwise nobody would ever go see a live show. Musicians also communicate with their bodies, with other band members, with the audience, they use their bodies to express the music. And I thought, we already have a robot musician on stage, why not make it be a full-fledged musician? And I started designing a socially expressive head for the robot. The head doesn’t actually touch the marimba, it just expresses what the music is like. These are some napkin sketches from a bar in Atlanta that was dangerously located exactly halfway between my lab and my home. So I spent, I would say, on average, three to four hours a day there. I think.
