In robotics, singularity is a point in space that the robot can not reach. Constrained by its engines, the rigidity of its axles and the (im) power equations with multiple unknowns, the robot that never ceases to reach and respect the instructions given by its operator. To get from point A to point B, it implements all its flexibility, its sensors, its algorithms, its equations and mathematical models, its embedded intelligence brief to avoid more dangerous situations: the singularity. It is a spatial positions where the robot gets stuck, can not extract, does not know how to move to get out. In posture of total disability, the robot relies on the operator manually, the repositioning.
The "Singularity" room used as the material movement of a robot - conductor - in a space marked intrinsically singularities. A series of sensors (angular, camera, laser ...) monitor the movements / avoidance of singularities of this mechanical guinea pig and control the sound synthesis in real time. A video mapping device suggests the rough edges of this space-time linear appearance to humans, but full of irregularities for a robot constrained by the rigidity of his movements.
