MuseBot Chill-out Session: A Continuously Running Generative Music Installation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Musebots are pieces of software that autonomously create music, collaboratively with other musebots. The goal of this project is to establish a fascinating creative platform for experimenting with musical autonomy, open to people developing cutting-edge music AI, or simply exploring the creative potential of generative processes in music. Not simply a robot jam, but individual virtual instrumentalists coming together, like a band, to autonomously create (in this case) downtempo EDM. For this premiere of the musebot ensemble, we have contributions from Europe, Australia, and North America.

Curated by Arne Eigenfeldt and Oliver Bown
SFU Woodwards, 2nd floor outside the Multimedia Labs
Beginning Friday August 14 6pm until Tuesday August 18 6pm
