Before working with Jaywick’s local community, I was initially collaborating with Jaywick’s orchestra aiming to establish a human/robot concert, composed by a machine learning system and played by the humans.

6 chapters that presentsthe project’s events. Each composition has been made by the machine learning. See below the methodology used to “teach” the machine learning algorithm:
  • First composition:
    • Learning period: November to December 2018
    • Compositions learned: 100: Vivaldi, Max Richter, Mozart
    • Time to compose a sound: 10 sec for a 3:55min score.

  • Second composition:
    • Learning period: Beginning of December to Mid-December 2018
    • Compositions learned: 100 (+100 from the previous batch): Max Cooper, Olafur Arnolds, Woodkid
    • Time to compose a sound: 12 sec for a 3:55min score.
