Speaker Botz are mobile robotic speakers, acoustic explorers of terrestrial space, artificial creatures that probe their environment with sonic impulses. Initially developed as a reaction to the practice of sound spatialization as found in electro-acoustic music, they have become an autonomous project, resulting in poetic machines who’s purpose is to envelop listeners with patterns of echoes bouncing off the walls. They are shy creatures which do not like to be looked at and are best suited for dark places.
