*** Solo Concert of Music Playing Robots ***

You can download and listen to the interesting sounds of music played by the robots.

(1)Saxophone Playing Robot( APR-SX2)

"Harlem Nocturne"

The robot player is playing one of the favorite music of Sam The Man Tailor. He had visited Japan many times and he used to play the music responding to the request of Japanese audience. The music was pretty difficult for an amateur saxophone player, but every amateur tried to play the tune. That is "Harlem Nocturne".
@Because the music is very long, it is divided into three parts. Please download each part, then connect with each one and play from the beginning.(recorded on Nov. 14, 1996)
