Marv is a MIDI Actuated Robotic Vibraphone.
Marv can play music of high complexity, far more complex than a human player could ever achieve, as Marv is capable of striking any and all keys simultaneously, as well as damping each key individually. Marv can play much faster than a human vibraphonist, repeating single notes as quickly as 25ms apart. Marv can play with sensitivity and feeling limited only by MIDI programming effort. Marv is a platform for further research on musical automation and real-time musical interaction. See Marv go on the Video page
Marv was created by Tim O'Keefe, Michael McIntyre, and Brock Roland at the SFSU School of Engineering.
