Cyberdronyx is an electro-acoustic performance that uses materials as its main source of sound for the creation of sound textures, rhythms and melodies,  combining  electronics and electroacoustic, improvisation and sound-art in a work-in-progress changing in accordance with circumstances and places. It has been presented in several European countries – Austria, Germany, Norway, Romania and Hungary – as well as non-European – Brazil, Russia and the United Stat

The performances consists of three elements:
The rhythm section – three percussionists photonic robot which, with their frantic movements create the random and rhythmic texture while their bodies project iridescent highlights;
The Band – the Rudimachines – an electro acoustic set of musical sculptures made up of recovered materials;
The Electronics – pedals, Loopers, handmade and/or hacked hardware.

During the A/V performance a flow of intermingling images – both live and recorded – will be projected over the whole stage: the random mix of rhythm, sound and light effects will alter of reality, creating a drug-free (natural high) psychadelic experience.  At given times, the artist shall play the musical sculptures following the rhythmic pattern set up by the robots, with a duration of about 20 to 50 minutes.

Rudi Punzo has always been entranced with the idea of metamorphosis and its relationship to the artist’s transformation of one material into another. Combing this thinking with his interest in rendering into music the sound that kinetic works inherently produce, Punzo’s mesmerizing alchemy results in wondrous sculptural and aural hybrids in a continual state of flux and renewal. Punzo lives and works in Torino, Italy.
