Workshop - Artistic Creation with Machine Learning
June 26
Elgar Concert Hall, The Bramall
Aaron Einbond and Artemi-Maria Gioti lead our first workshop of Body-Space-Action-Agency. Through two compositions for acoustic instruments and electronics incorporating Machine Learning (ML): Aaron Einbond’s Prestidigitation, for percussion and 3-D electronics, and Artemi-Maria Gioti’s Bias II, for piano and interactive music system. The workshop will provide insights into the scores, ML algorithms and datasets used in the two works and will address questions of material engagement, musical labour, authorship, and subjectification as they relate to the use of AI in them.

Artemi-Maria Gioti
Artemi-Maria Gioti is a composer and artistic researcher working in the field of artificial intelligence. Her research explores the transformative potential of new technologies for musical thinking and seeks to redefine notions of authorship, performership and the construct of the musical work. She holds a doctoral degree in Music Composition from the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz (Austria). She is currently a Lecturer at the University of Music Carl Maria von Weber Dresden and a Research Fellow in Music and Artificial Intelligence at University College London (UCL), working on the ERC project MusAI, led by Georgina Born.

Aaron Einbond
Aaron Einbond’s work explores the intersection of instrumental music, field recording, sound installation, and interactive technology questioning relationships between instrument, loudspeaker, listener, space, and place. Record label all that dust recently released his portrait album Cosmologies performed by cellist Séverine Ballon, pianist Alvise Sinivia, and the Riot Ensemble. His album Cities features collaborations with ensemble Yarn/Wire and Matilde Meireles, and his portrait album Without Words was recorded by Ensemble Dal Niente. He currently teaches at City, University of London and is Co-Artistic Director of Qubit New Music in New York. He has taught at Columbia University, the University of Huddersfield, and Harvard University and studied at Harvard University, the University of Cambridge, the University of California Berkeley, and IRCAM with teachers including Mario Davidovsky, Julian Anderson, Edmund Campion, and Philippe Leroux.
