It is still a strange feeling when AI-generated music triggers emotional reactions in us. Despite the inability of AI systems to feel human emotions, they are able to create music that sounds natural and emotional. This is achieved by learning relevant statistical patterns that AI systems can find in large collections of music samples. This performance with Yishu Jiang (violoncello), Daniela Mülleder (violin) and Ali Nikrang (piano) focuses on AI-composed music, with human-composed music as counterpoint. The performance is meant to emphasize the strange feeling of being emotionally manipulated by AI. The compositions in this performance also include results from a newly developed AI composition system called Ricercar: An AI-based Music Companion, developed by Ali Nikrang at the Ars Electronica Futurelab.
