01.10.2020: AI-generated music – lecture with sound examples and discussion by Werner Bogula

Increasingly, AI is being used to generate music, literature, and art under the buzzword Generative AI. The lecture deals with the possibilities of automatic generation of music pieces using the example of lute music from the Renaissance. After a short presentation of the lute and its music, the lecture will deal with the following topics:

– Principle operation of AI methods for music generation

– Use of prefabricated models and training of own models

– Presentation of the results of own models with audio examples

– Practical applications, effects and outlook

– Critical examination and discussion of the automatic generation of music

The idea of the lecture is to build a bridge between the cultural techniques of the Renaissance and the most modern technologies of our time. In addition to information about the technology, the lecture is intended to provide stimuli for thinking about basic cultural concepts such as work, author and creativity.

No mathematical knowledge is required for the lecture

Duration: approx. 90 minutes (lecture approx. 60 minutes plus 20-30 minutes for a discussion afterwards).

Talk/Moderation: ARIC Ambassador Werner Bogula is a BigData and AI developer as well as a passionate amateur lutenist. As a digital enabler, he investigates the practical impact of digital technology on culture and society.
