Mother Tongue

Mother Tongue, a cluster of robotic pods that react sonically to their environment, is a musical project and performance by ayyoko confidential. The robots, through interaction, generate a proto language which in small part aims to build a new cultural lattice between man, machine, and nature thus allaying fears of the singularity.
