Generate! Shedhalle Tübingen

Shedhalle Tübingen 15 November 20.30

Karl Heinz Jeron’s sculptures sing an 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 work any differently than any other 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 deliberately differ from them.
