Sónar and UPC present AI and Music Festival – Live on May 13th
Sónar and UPC are exploring connections between AI and Music.
This Thursday 13th May from 17:00 – 19:00 Sónar and UPC are organizing a collaborative workshop ‘Exploring connections between AI and Music’. The virtual event will bring together a panel of pioneering artists – YACHT, Mouse on Mars and Ivan Paz – and experts in Artificial Intelligence and machine learning – Michela Milano (Università di Bologna), Jordi Pons (Dolby) y Javier Ruiz (UPC) – to explore the connections between AI and musical creation.
This free live-stream will introduce the framework for the S+T+ARTS AI and Music Festival, and will be its first event.
Taking place at Barcelona’s CCCB on the 27th and 28th October 2021, the AI and Music festival is an initiative of the S+T+ARTS program of the European Commission, and is organized by Sónar, UPC-Universidad Politécnica de Catalunya and betevé.
This Thursday’s workshop will be the first in a series of activities, talks, debates and knowledge-exchanges organized by the Festival’s ThinkingLab.
In session from now until the dates of the festival, the ThinkingLab is a space for experimentation and debate, bringing together international experts in Artificial Intelligence, (musicians, artists, technologists, cultural historians, scientists, researchers…) with the goal of identifying and developing the most cutting edge approaches to AI as relating to musical creativity. The conclusions reached, and ideas developed, will in turn inform a large part of the program for October’s festival.
The workshop will take place in English, with the live-stream free to watch on the link below.Watch Here
