Playing and listening to music increases our quality of living. To analyze why this is so, it is advantageous to understand how body and mind is engaged when expert musicians perform.
This 6th edition of MusicLab focuses on musical interactions between humans and machines, featuring prominent musicians from Norway’s improvisation scene. Christian Winther (guitar) and Dag Erik Knedal Andersen (drums) will play with an artificial intelligence-enabled interactive music system, CAVI, developed by Çağrı Erdem.
In the tradition of "minute-by-minute" TV shows, you will have the chance to watch RITMO researchers set up equipment and record a performance by the Borealis String Quartet. This is a unique chance to watch the "behind the scenes" of a very complex data capture session. We will stream everything, with live commentary by the researchers.
The 5th edition of MusicLab was a virtual algorave. Prominent algoravers Renick Bell and Khoparzi improvised live-coded music on their computers from their respective locations in Japan and India, while the audience danced to the rave music in their homes all over the world. This event was also the launch of our brand new MusicLab App!
