Silent Movies

Cleaning Women also performs musical accompaniments to old classic Soviet-era silent movies. Their second studio album "Aelita - the Queen of Mars" was even named after director Yakov Protazanov's old sci-fi classic.


Cleaning Women is an experimental group consisting of three cleaning robots (CW01, CW03 and CW04). Besides their unique music, Cleaning Women is known for their alternative ways in choosing their instruments. The origin of their acoustic sound can be traced to self-made and self-customized instruments, which are crafted from mangled household items or material salvaged from trash bins.
