For three hot and sweaty nights in July, punk music and robots collide at the ICA in a series of exciting and evolving gigs called Neurotic. Neurotic highlights the neurology associated with the essential human experience of pleasure, learning, taste and ageing within the context of the instinct to dance.

Artist Fiddian Warman fronts ‘Neurotic and the PVCs’ when they play to an audience of humans and three 2-metre tall punk loving robotic versions of Fiddian’s younger self. Each robot has the ability to pogo up to an imposing height of 2.3 metres. Controlling these robots is a Neural Network modeled on the neurology of the human brain and educated in punk music.

The performances will be at ICA London July 3, 4, 5, 2008.
