Sun Powered Musical Instruments is a sound based exploration of the assumptions underlying technology's harness on nature. A series of robots, constructed as a combination of simple electronics and elements from nature, create different rhythms depending on how much sunlight they are exposed to. The sounds are created as an attempt to recreate natural sounds. They end up sounding mechanical and repetitive, with the only variation coming from the changing sunlight.
