Keywords: Robotics, Neural Network, Contagion, Data, Sound Generation, Collective Behavior, Installation, kinetics

TURBA is a hybrid environment of artistic speculation that combines an electromechanical robotic device and its sonification with the network structure of 64 neural oscillators and the social context of the collective behaviors. None of the actions generated by TURBA is previously arranged: no sound, no movement, no pattern is deliberately produced. Quite the opposite, these elements come alive because of its own processes in its own network structure.
