MusicMakers Hacklab – The Hacked Mind

Tuesday 30 January 2018 | Kunstquartier Bethanien, Berlin
Hosted by Peter Kirn (CDM) and Ioann Maria.

In his talk, Gene Kogan examined the ways in which machine learning augments the composer's workstation, including compositional assistant tools sorting large media collections and deep generative models for audio synthesis.

The CTM MusicMakers Hacklab is a weeklong open, collaborative laboratory hosted by Peter Kirn of Create Digital Music. Now entering its 6th edition within the CTM Festival, the 2018 Hacklab brought on co-host Ioann Maria to reflect on the promise and danger of artificial intelligence and machine learning in music under “The Hacked Mind” theme. Four Input talks were programmed during the Hacklab week, to give Hacklab fellows and interested audiences a few possible points of entry into in theme. Fellows worked on new musical ideas and inventions all week, presenting their work at the Hacklab Finale on CTM 2018’s closing Sunday.

The CTM 2018 MusicMakers Hacklab was presented with Native Instruments and SHAPE, which is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
