Furniture Music(s) 2021—A multi-channel AI generative music installation
With the introduction of Gymnopédie as a prompt, an AI model trained on music composed by the French composer Erik Satie keeps generating and playing countless variations in parallel through multiple speakers located around the venue.
AI music generation models capable of generating an infinite number of variations and versions of a song imply a new form of music, different from the current notion of “music” fully composed and fixated on musical scores and media.
Inspired by the notion of “Furniture Music” proposed by Satie, this small sound installation presents countless versions-of-a-composition-as-they-could-be in parallel and implies a new form of music-as-it-can-be.
