Algorithmic Composition

New horizons in the artistic collaboration between man and machine are the theme of this moderated concert that presents new compositions by Iamus, a computer cluster developed by the Institute for Biomimetics at the University of Málaga. Iamus employs genetic algorithms to compose stylistically independent pieces of contemporary music. No more than a few seconds does it take Iamus to generate a new work by way of mutating musical genomes: generation after generation, a new composition arises, simulating evolutionary processes that eventually lead to scores to be performed by human musicians. – An evening that takes a glance at the world of artificial intelligence and its potential implementation in the arts.
