A.I. Music Composition
MEANDERING RIVER is an audio-visual installation created in collaboration with onformative. The piece is comprised of visuals generated by an algorithm and music composed by an A.I.
Spanning over multiple screens, the piece reinterprets the shifting behaviours of rivers by visualising and sonifying their impact on the surface of the earth.
As the first step of creating the piece, the visuals were used as a graphical score for piano players, who were invited to improvise to them. By this we gained datasets to train the A.I. which generated a new musical composition. We curated then for each scene the best fitting output and combined it with an additional event layer. The event layer reacts to sudden changes in the curve formation of the river. Thus, we created with the help of an A.I. a music expressing the various moods and dynamics of the visual scenery.
