Robotic Rhymes is an exciting collaboration between new media artist Sa1ntDenis and musician Piotr Theremin. This one-minute video loop explores the intersection of artificial intelligence, electronic music, and the rich history of dance.

Featuring archive photos from Piotr's family album of his great grandfather Lev Theremin, the video begins with the colorization and animation of Lev's image using AI technology. As the video progresses, Lev transforms into a robot playing the theremin electronic music instrument, and a host of other robots join in to dance in different styles and epochs, from the cancan to break-dance and twerk.

This dynamic and innovative artwork showcases the potential of new media to tell stories and explore the past in new and exciting ways.
