Robotic Orchestra

As project for the physival computing course I´d like to realize a “robotic orchestra”. The basic idea is to control several motors that are connected to the computer via an Arduino board. The actions of these motors is controlled creating a Pure Data patch. The motors serve like “real world players”. They can play and “bang” respectively on all kinds of objects according to the control data they receive from the host software. Digital bits and bytes are transferred into real motions.
I´ve seen a couple of people using solenoid motors for similar purposes, so this might be one direction to start with.

Technical requirements:

1.) arduino board

2.) motors (solenoid?)

3.) pure data
