Sonic Constructs is an interactive sound installation that uses Lego Mindstorms? semi-automata musical robots. In Sonic Constructs, two robotic devices move and interact while performing trajectories that produce sound as a by-product of the movement itself. Direction, speed, acceleration, position, scratching and collision characterise an environment for kinetic and acoustic participation. This paper investigates a critical context relating to the use of robotics in the digital arts.
