These concrete sculptures are singing a basically infinite number of songs generated by artificial intelligence (AI). The AI has been trained with field recordings (NASA space sounds, urban soundscapes and nature sounds).

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, which are based on originals or consciously differ from them.
The AI is able to compose songs in any genre or style. The result depends only on the data material that has been supplied.
