Participation of the MTG in the CCCB’s exhibition AI: Artificial Intelligence
The exhibition includes the interactive installation The Bongosero, created by Behzad Haki, Nicholas Evans, and Sergi Jordà.
From October 18th, 2023, the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB) offers the exhibition “AI: Artificial Intelligence”. The exhibition includes 25 interactive installations about the history, the creative possibilities of AI, and its ethical challenges, by artists such as Universal Everything, Robert del Naja (Massive Attack), Anna Ridler, Memo Akten, Mario Klingemann, Justine Emard, Steve Goodman (Kode 9), Espronceda, Eduard Escoffet, and Maria Arnal, as well as research and innovation centers such as the BSC-NCS, Axolot.cat, the Music Technology Group (UPF), the CVC and the MIT.
For the exhibition, the MTG has developed “The Bongosero”, an installation that enables visitors to engage with and train an AI for music generation. This interactive setup features a drumpad, allowing visitors to tap out rhythms and craft their unique music. Simultaneously, the visitors interactions contribute to the training of the Bongosero AI. It is a product of the research carried out by Behzad Haki and Sergi Jordà in these last years on AI-based music generation systems.
