Betreff: [ak-discourse] WG: Music-Data seminar Monday 25th


This coming Monday at 4pm (UK time) we are welcoming Anna Xambo-Sedo to talk about Data-Driven Sound-Based Music


Sound-based music is an inclusive approach to music-making based on the manipulation of sound recordings. The availability of large sound collections facilitates new approaches to music creation and production. In this talk, I will discuss different approaches to data-driven sound-based music, including AI-powered live coding environments, audience-centric performances, and live scientific data. The talk will focus on the musical potential of these tools as well as the related issues concerning data privacy, attribution, or authorship.
