SOFT MANIPULATOR  (2017) is a playful interactive installation where the audience experiments with rhythms, mechanics and everyday items. Everyday items like glasses as well as small music instruments are placed on a light table. Also on the table are seven robotic mechanic devices, which can be manipulated interactively by the audience. The six robotic mechanics beat the objects, creating a constantly changing polyrhytmic web of sound and rhythm.

"Simon Moritz Geist’s new work 'Soft Manipulator', continues to explore the black box of electronic sound production by laying out an array of everyday objects and mini-robots, which acoustically interact with these objects,
on the flat surface of a metal table. As in his previous well-know robot installation "MR 808 Interactive Drum Machine", the audience can control this interaction, this time by means of easily manipulating objects and knobs which
require no particular expertise to operate. Thus the installation supports and inherent desire for experimentation and sound - in a playful way with everyday objects and mechanical robots." (Jessica Buskirk)
