Bettelbot / BeggingBot by Alexander Gurko from Aram Bartholl on Vimeo.

The “Bettelbot”/”BeggingBot” by Alexander Gurko plays music just by floppy and hard drive mechanics. A 3,75 and 2,5 inch floppy drive and a very old hard disk represent different instruments playing a nice tune by just moving their heads and motors. When the tune is finished the CD drive opens asking for money :-). Just pay some cents and the bot plays again.
Very nice piece. 🙂
