Soul In the Machine's website

Soul in the Machine is a live electronic music performance act which presents electronic dance music by combining technology, sculpture and music. Three instrumentalists play on a drumwall, laserharp, marimba and MIDI lever, one-of-a-kind sculptures which have an associated lighting action corresponding to each sound struck or altered. It was founded by three people, but the overall endeavor is so complex that over time it has grown to encompass a much larger team of instrumentalists, singers, performers, dancers, music producers, fabricators and designers.
