From wind that whistles through rustling leaves to the rhythmic cascade of rain on a spring day, nature’s soundscape has the power to transport us to a place of serenity and contemplation, and inspires us to live in the moment. In this concert, new music by the Spectrum composers and guests creates an immersive experience inspired by the wild and uninhibited beauty of nature.
Artificial intelligence spontaneously generates immersive soundscapes in performance alongside a live jazz trio featuring Sarah Thawer (drums), Caleb Klager (bass), and Chris Pruden (keys). You’ll be transported through abstract visuals, catered to each piece, leveraging the latest techniques in machine learning/AI. Watch the FREE concert stream through Twitch on Friday, July 30th at 8pm ET.
An hour-long post-concert chat will take place the following day on July 31st 1pm ET. Join us for this chat as Artistic Producer, Mason Victoria, and Visual Software Artist, Ryan Kelln, share experiences from behind-the-scenes production, including the makings and implementation of AI visuals, audio, and digital tools!
