What if Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms could write the music that you listen to? And who would own that music?

Artificial intelligence (AI), like in the rest of our lives, can now be found in every corner of the music industry. From analysing music listening behaviours to creating personalised playlists, to evaluating which songs are most likely to be popular with music consumers, it is everywhere.

What if Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms could write the music that you listen to?

In this experimental concert, we will premiere a set of pieces created by a team of musicians and researchers working with AI algorithms that learn how to compose by analysing music written by humans.

We will explore how the choice of learning materials and the intervention of humans in the composition process affect the music that machines create and the implications to authorship and copyright.

Part of Musical Futures, an annual series of concerts and events that explore the future of music-making, digital creativity, and new ways to perform, experience and interact with music.
