Marimba playing robot with album release and tour plan

Georgia Tech’s four-armed robot Shimon, which was developed to play marimba in 2017, has now evolved into a singer-songwriter who learns 50,000 songs through deep learning and even writes, composes, and sings by himself. Through this, a future band is formed and an album containing the single, Shimon Sings, is released.

Georgia Tech said it was planning a tour after releasing the album through Spotify on April 10th. Simon writes lyrics based on the 50,000 songs he learned in jazz, progressive rock, and hip-hop, according to the given themes and lyrics rules. It is characterized by creating lyrics that follow rhyme without breaking the rhythm. Of course, you can compose the lyrics, but later, the developer and jazz player Professor Gil Weinberg takes a way to think of the melody.

The performance technique is also faster than before, and it is possible to hit marimba such as strength and weakness, and it is said that it is possible to produce a sound with rich expression. Not only that, but you can also send signals to members. There are already robot bands out there, but Simon is differentiated in that he is a singer-songwriter with built-in AI.

Through the monthly AHC PC and HowPC magazine era, he has watched 'technology age' in online IT media such as ZDNet, electronic newspaper Internet manager, editor of Consumer Journal Ivers, TechHolic publisher, and editor of Venture Square. I am curious about this market that is still full of vitality.
