The AI and Music S+T+ARTS Festival, co-organized by Sónar, the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya and béteve, will bring together a host of creatives, engineers, and scientists to explore and demonstrate the creative potential of this technology through a varied program of live shows, and specially commissioned remote performances, talks, debates, and hackathons. They were taking place both in-person at Barcelona’s CCCB and L’Auditori, and live-streamed in full in October 27-28, 2021.

Marius Miron participates in the panel AI and future music genres (Thursday 28, 12:30 - 14:00, Auditori CCCB). 

Technology has defined musical sounds, structures, genres, and styles throughout the centuries, and in 2021 we are pretty much sure that AI will define the history of music for years to come, and that it will gather audiences that will identify with this new music made with AI. Participating in the discussion are: Libby Heaney (artist, coder, quantum physicist), Nabihah Iqbal (musician, musicologist), Jan St. Werner of the band Mouse on Mars, and Marius Miron, researcher at the Music Technology Group, computer scientist at the intersection of music technology and AI and transparency and fairness.

Ángel Faraldo and Andrés Lewin-Richter (Phonos) collaborates with Reiko Yamada to compose two pieces for the performance Interpreting Quantum Randomness: Concept by Reiko Yamada and Maciej Lewenstein (Thursday 28, 15:35 - 16:15, Teatre Stage). 

If music is mathematics, then it holds to reason that by applying advanced mathematical theory to the structure of music itself, hitherto undiscovered sounds will emerge. This is the broad conceptual framework underlying the work of Japanese composer and sound artist Reiko Yamada, whose ongoing work ‘Of Randomness and Imperfection’, seeks to produce unique sound events from the genuine quantum true randomness of quantum physical systems. Ángel Faraldo (artistic director of Phonos) and Andrés Lewin-Richter (executive director of Phonos), collaborate in this performance with two pieces created for the event.
