The Vinyl Factory is proud to present The ADA Project by Conrad Shawcross at its exhibition space at Brewer Street Car Park in Soho, London. For the project, four renowned female musicians created works in response to the movements of an industrial robot that has been hacked and programmed by the artist to create four unique choreographies. Using a combination of vocal processing, synthesis and recordings of the robot in motion, Holly Herndon attempted to emote the sentience implied in the robot's movements as she curiously probes and surveys her environment. For Conrad Shawcrosss ADA Project, four renowned female artists were invited to create compositions in response to a dancing robot, programmed and Shawcross ADA Project opens at The Vinyl Factory in London this weekend. Its not every day you get to hear a track where the machine is the one doing the dancing. Invited by Shawcross to his ADA Salon for a residency, Herndon spent ten days with the mechanical device, choreographed by Shawcross to respond to ratios detailed by Victorian inventor Charles Babbage and his assistant Ada Lovelace for their visionary yet ultimately flawed early computer The Difference Engine. Holly Herndon born 1980 is an American composer, musician, and sound artist based in Berlin, Germany. After studying composition at Stanford University and completing her Ph. at Stanford Universitys Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics, she pursued her international career. Herndon's music often includes human singing voices-such as her own one, is primarily computer-based, and regularly uses the visual programming language MaxMSP to create custom instruments and vocal processes. Before British artist Conrad Shawcross got hold of it, this particular robot, scarcely more than a giant metal arm, would have done little more than paint-spraying and tack-welding in a car factory. It would move along, it would go bzz. It would move back, it would go bzz, says Shawcross, who programmed the graceful arcs traversed by its looming steel joints. Herndon spent a week in Shawcrosss studio in Hackney, living upstairs while spending her days singing to the robot in the sitting room, sweeping microphones across its engines and composing on the fly in response to its elegant seesawing movements. Holly Herndon operates at the nexus of technological evolution and musical euphoria. Hollys third full-length album 'PROTO' isnt about A. but much of it was created in collaboration with her own A. baby, Spawn. Just as Hollys previous album 'Platform' forewarned of the manipulative personal and political impacts of prying social media platforms long before popular acceptance, 'PROTO' is a euphoric and principled statement setting the shape of things to come. released May 10, 2019. Four musicians perform with a moving robot built by the artist but are the results Kraftwerk-esque or more Metal Mickey By Alex Needham. The centrepiece is a large robot a tripod with a trunk and a long, sinuous arm, at the end of which is a probe with a light on the end. It has a twin, back at Shawcross's studio in Hackney, and a mother a similar, much larger robot Shawcross built for a 2012 collaboration with the Royal Ballet called Metamorphosis Titian.

Conrad Shawcross is an obvious example of a modern-day machine fancier. His work involves lots of moving parts, Heath Robinson contraptions that quite literally go through the motions for their own sake. Ive never been convinced its all quite impressive, sure, but to what ends does his art perform I was intrigued, then, when I heard about his most recent project at the Vinyl Factorys huge outpost in Soho. One of Shawcrosss obsessions is the pioneering 19th-century mathematician Ada Lovelace
