Invited Talk by Philippe Pasquier
Talk Title: Fruits of the MuMe: Advances on Musical Metacreation
Musical Metacreation brings together scientists and artists to design generative systems that are tackling musical tasks at human competitive levels. We will introduce and motivate these new developments of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning towards computer-assisted musical creativity. We will illustrate our discourse with examples of systems designed and developed at the Metacreation Laboratory that compose music, automate sound design for film and video games, or generate presets for sound synthesizers. We will discuss how these systems are evaluated and deployed.
