BROOKLYN - Robots playing music? That's exactly what's happening at one Red Hook studio.

Artist Chico MacMurtrie has 35 mechanical musicians getting ready to play a free concert after overcoming some setbacks to the show in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.

MacMurtrie says his robots are all connected to computer software that sends electricity and makes them move.

The robotic concert is Sept. 22 at 111 Pioneer St.
