'Looks Like Music' is the latest musical installation from designer Yuri Suzuki. Suzuki's creation features tiny robots called 'Color Chasers' that are programmed to follow a path created by a black marker. When the robots run over colored marks on the path, they play a sound. All of the robots in Looks Like Music (there are five in total) have a different shape and play a different sound, including drums, deep bass and chords.

Suzuki is dyslexic and cannot read music. However, the Japanese designer does like to play music and has created many installations that make music in unconventional ways. Looks Like Music was recently on display at the Mudam museum in Luxembourg where guests were allowed to create their own tunes using nothing but markers and robots.
