2nd Conference on AI Music Creativity (MuMe + CSMC) 18.-22. July 2021, online

erstellt am 18. Juli 2021

The second Conference on AI Music Creativity brings together two overlapping research forums: The Computer Simulation of Music Creativity Conference (est. 2016) and The International Workshop on Musical Metacreation (est. 2012). The objective of the conference is to bring together scholars and artists interested in the emulation and extension of musical creativity through computational means and to provide them with an interdisciplinary platform in which to present and discuss their work in scientific and artistic contexts.

 

The 2021 Conference on AI Music Creativity will be hosted by the Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics (IEM) of the University of Music and Performing Arts of Graz, Austria and held online. The five-day program will feature 7 paper sessions, 6 concerts, 2 workshops and three keynotes, by Georgina Born, George E. Lewis and Rebecca Fiebrink. A detailed program is available on the conference website: https://aimc2021.iem.at/.

 

 

Conference Theme

 

The theme of this year’s conference is: Performing [with] machines. The dual meaning of this title hints towards an understanding of the machine as a performing agent in a human-machine partnership. By putting the emphasis on creative human-machine partnerships in performative contexts, this theme aims to encourage artistic and scientific contributions that deal with the different ways in which musicianship, authorship and performership are challenged, extended and redefined in the era of AI.
