AI in Music symposium

I look forward to taking part in the AI in Music – Agency, Performance, Production and Perception symposium organised by the University of Music Trossingen’s members of the KISS project. The event will run for two days, 15th and 16th of December 2023. The programme looks very interesting, with keynotes, panels, and concerts addressing different aspects of the use of AI in music. I will contribute to the panel on AI in performance together with Thor Magnusson and Anna Xambó. Here is the panel abstract:

The panel discusses how Artificial Intelligence can offer novel possibilities for music performance. The panel examines the utilization of algorithms as co-performers and machine learning as a means of enhancing the interface between human bodies and sound production. Furthermore, the panel considers how machine learning itself can become a central element of performance and how bodies of data can be made performatively perceptible. It gathers viewpoints aimed at understanding the impact of creative AI on our interactions with technology, social dynamics, and knowledge creation.

Talking with Anna and Thor about these topics is going to be such a treat.
