Chameleon’s Blendings performed by a OBC’s String Quartet and pianist Fani Karagianni. (Premiere)
For this exclusive audiovisual piece, presented by the AI investigation and communication platform ARTIFICIA, we go behind the scenes of the Artificial Intelligenge Research Institute (IIIA-CSIC) and Aristotle Thessaloniki University ‘AI Chameleon’, a GAN capable of generating musical harmonies that can be interpreted by various musicians. In the 15 minute capsule, a chamber quartet of musicians from Barcelona’s OBC and the Greek pianist Fanny Karagianni will play versions of these harmonies in an interaction between human creation and algorithmic composition.
The Ai and Music Festival 2021 was organized by Sónar, the Universitat Politécnica de Catalunya (UPC), béteve, the European Commission as part of the S+T+ARTS initiative and CCCB.
