Computer Improvisation

Thursday 21 June 6.30pm
Computer Improvisation

Following on from the Algorithmic Improviser hack-together @ Serial Space this performance event will showcase (more or less) autonomous musical software agents for live improvised performance, exploring strategies for autonomy and creative approaches to using systems borrowed from computer science. The results are not virtual performers but agents that inhabit the space between instruments, performers and compositions.

Benjamin Carey, Oliver Bown, Aengus Martin and Peter Hollo, together with special guests – Andrew Brown (Professor of Digital Arts at the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University) and Palle Dahlstedt (Sweden) performing with autonomous musical software agents for live improvised performance, exploring strategies for autonomy and creative approaches to using systems borrowed from computer science.

Programme –

  • Isidore – Aengus Martin (generative composition)
  • Foldings – Palle Dahlstedt (keyboard and live electronics)
  • decider vs _derivations triptych – Ollie Bown and Ben Carey (saxophone and live electronics)
