Art Rocks Athens: How Art Made Music In Georgia From 1975-85
Fred’s vocals by DECTalk Express which is also used by Stephen Hawking. Cindy and Kate’s vocals utilized two HP Scanjet 3C flatbed scanners. The robot guitar, keyboard, snare and bass drum all are controlled with a couple of PIC16F84A microcontrollers.
special thanks goes out to:
Chris Rasmussen who offered to fly me and my robot band down to Athens, Georgia for the Art Rocks Athens Festival. Sadly due to my work schedule I could not make it. What he didn’t know I was already secretly working on my next video so I offered to promote this great venue.
Pastor Snoopi Botten has provided great on-line material with respect to programming the DECTalk speech synthesizer.http://theflameofhope.co/DECTALK.html
Special thanks goes out to Greg Howley and without his help this project would of never seen the light of day.
