Zapped to the beat

Think they could give me riddim? Fast Company explains:

During the synth intro, you see five sets of arms wiggle listlessly. When the beat kicks in, they pump with a bit more rhythm. But the faceless performers aren’t dancing–well, at least not of their own volition. Instead, they’re serving as a human visualizer, shocked into action (literally) by carefully placed electrodes.

    Very interesting. The persons do not move at their own volition.
    The same persons could play together in a band or orchestra and then they move coordinated at their own volition.
    This is interesting to consider in the discussion if free will exits.
