Featured Session: Artificial Intelligence and Interdependent Music

Date TBA


Holly Herndon will discuss her doctoral research in artificial intelligence and music that featured on her album PROTO. She will critique common 20th century narratives spanning the mythology of the independent artist, sampling culture lore, and kitsch science fiction stories of human displacement by sentient machines, in favor of optimistic proposals of human interdependence augmented by new technologies.
