“Artificial Improvisers” features computer programs acting as interactive collaborators, improvising music in realtime with human performers while maintaining the framework of composed music. These computer programs are capable of developing their own unique musical concepts, while listening and engaging with a human musician. The computer will move through a variety of roles, acting as a performer, improviser, composer, conductor and will be performing with a human ensemble consisting of saxophone/clarinet/flute, violin, two guitars and drums.
This event is free and open to the public.
