Musicians can seem a bit robotic in a good way when they play in unison.

But these musicians had an excuse.

Without a baton or tailcoat, Android Alter 3 led a symphony orchestra’s players through a live performance in a city in the United Arab Emirates.

Instead, the robot has a humanoid face, hands and lower arms which can move to the beat.

Android Alter 3 certainly seems energetic, even though they were playing classic music, instead of the genre preferred by robots; heavy metal.

The android is able to control the volume and tempo of the live show, and even belts out a few notes at times.

The composer says the goal is to see how technology comes together with art.

It looks like everything’s in perfect harmony!
