Decap Robot Orchestra

Back to Gallery

c. 1957

Manufactured by Gebroeders Decap (Decap Brothers) in Antwerp, Belgium.

Contains several ranks of pipes, a Hammond organ, and a custom synthesizer for trumpet and saxophone voices. One robot plays a Crucianelli piano accordion.

This is the larger of the two robot orchestras, featuring a 105 key organ (the smaller has 92 keys). It is estimated that 10 robot orchestras were built.
