[REPORTÉ] AI in Electroacoustic Music Research
- On 2 mars 2020
The Applied Philosophy Research Laboratory of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA), with the support of the Hellenic Artificial Intelligence Society, is organizing the first interdisciplinary conference on Artificial and Augmented Intelligence and the ways in which it is expected to affect us in the immediate as well as the remote future.
The main event will be held at Technopolis City of Athens (Pireos str. 100, 118 54, Athens, Greece), [postponed]
from the 30th to the 31st of March 2020, and the side events will be held at the same place in the context of the Athens Science Festival 2020 (1 -2 of April 2020), therefore providing networking potential.
Abstract: AI in Electroacoustic Music Research
The electroacoustic music is composed or performed by using analog or digital machines to create or transform the sound. Performances are made with digital musical instruments (DMI) and loudspeaker orchestras which can be mixed with acoustic musical instruments. The sound material has no limits, it can take the form of audio recordings of musical sounds, noises or be the result of complex sound synthesis or transformations with sound effects. For the musician as well as for the listener or musicologist, the unheard of, the informal, the atemporal are what often characterizes the musical experience. How to apply AI techniques based on a statistical treatment of meticulously labeled elements to music that escapes classification, whose sound material is difficult to analyze or which fails to be memorized due to ephemeral and changing structures? This presentation will question the contribution of AI in the study of electroacoustic music by drawing links between AI and musical analysis techniques based on morphological and systemic approaches.
