Last September, we opened up the debate about what ‘originality’ means or, indeed, if it actually exists or is possible to achieve. Now, 10 months later, as we approach the end of our Sounds Original? season, we consider what ‘originality’ might look like into the future.
Future Music looks at current developments in new music and technology – Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, Live Coding and more besides – asking what possibilities lie ahead for the music creators of the future.
This will be a day of cutting-edge ideas, performances, demos and debate and a chance to consider the age we live in – questioning not just the impact of machines on music but also on us as people.
Guest artists/contributors include the Explore Ensemble, data musician Shelly Knotts, and mathematician Marcus du Sautoy, whose latest book The Creativity Code delves into the future potential for AI and creativity.
All events are free admission, no ticket required except The Voice of the Machine event at 7.30pm
