Online Work In Progress Performance and Talk
Sonified Body is a research project using Artificial Intelligence to transform a moving body into sound. Using a technique called 'unsupervised learning', the artists have trained an AI model to analyse human movement simply by watching many hours of a person move. They present here the system's world premiere in a live improvised audio-dance work. This performance is accompanied by a talk with the artists about the system and how the work aims to explore critical issues around AI and the relationship between humans and digital systems.
