Cryptic Life Signs from The Multiverse

A concrete sculpture sings an infinite number of songs generated by artificial intelligence (AI). The songs are generated with an AI algorithm. The AI software has been trained with field recordings and pieces of music from the Internet that have been marked with the keywords “love, hate, life, death, ecstasy, drunkenness, euphoria”. Jeron’s music-making machines don’t
really work any differently than any composer. First, they learn about existing styles and then create similar technical reproductions. The AI recognizes patterns in the structure of a piece – for example the chords used, the notes of a melody, repetitions or variations. Based on these patterns, the AI recreates the “logic” of a musical genre and finally creates an infinite pool of new compositions.
