For the Love of Robots and Anthropomorphic Instruments

I came across a few moments of the Animusic series on PBS last night, and was immediately entranced. I scrambled feverishly for the remote and a blank VHS tape…then I remembered youtube.

Recipe for instant smile: a MST3K-esque set, robots (my favorite is the red one on the right, especially when it puts its arms up and just flows with the music), and synth pop that stirs my 80’s nostalgia.

This series seems to be full of creepily anthropomorphic creations playing music…on themselves.
