Musical Bots Play Ancient Tunes

Gamelan is an ancient form of music, mainly from Indonesia. On Wednesday evening it will be getting a modern treatment at the Museum of Science in Boston.

The group Gamelan Galaktika will share the stage, for the first time, with some unusual musicians: robots. Together, they'll present two new works composed specifically for Gamelan and robot.

Matt Largey stopped by their rehearsal for a sneak preview.
