Hi! We have a question – can you actually learn to play an Orbita? Can professional musicians make use of it during ‘serious’ performances?
We asked Berlin-based artist, Ain the Machine what he thought.
He makes music using only his body, voice, and random objects – that we have in common!

Having studied percussion at a conservatory, Ain the Machine knows a thing or two about precision.
At the same time, as someone who jammed with Bobby McFerrin, he knows how to go with the flow.
In this tutorial, he teaches us to make a track for Orbita in just 10 minutes.
Being meticulous with the rhythm track allows him to then be instinctive with the melody and vocals. Playtronica meets Música Biotronica!
Soon we will launch Orbita campaign on Kickstarter. So stay tuned!
