What if a piece of music could change and develop according to who was listening?
Professor Nikki Dibben first became aware of the potential of AI to create interactive music while working with Björk on the artist’s multi-media album-app Biophilia (2011). Now Nikki has teamed with electronic music producer Jack Hudson to create a unique sonic experience that uses interactivity to disrupt the traditional categories of composer, performer and audience.
Dynamic Reactions takes light and sound data from audience members to spontaneously influence the machine-generated music you hear, creating a hybrid virtual composer-performer-listener. The exhibit is housed in Millennium Gallery .
