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.
