Join ‘Machine Listening: Improvisation and Control’ Online This Saturday 13th March

Machine Listening: Improvisation and Control

Machine Listening is an investigation and experiment in collective learning, instigated by Melbourne’s Liquid Architecture. The project launched in October 2020 with an open access curriculum site and series of online presentations, performances and pedagogical experiments at Unsound Festival in Poland, and reconvenes on Saturday 13th Mar 2021 with a new online live event, ‘Improvisation and Control’. 


Staged as part of the NTU CCA Singapore’s recurring Free Jazz exhibition program, Unsound is a partner of the episode, which will focus on the complex and evolving dialectic between improvisation and control, framed via a detour into the experimental computer music laboratories of the 1980s and 1990s where the term ‘machine listening’ first begins to circulate.


‘Machine Listening: Improvisation and Control’ will feature new performances, presentations and works by Bridget Chappell and Allison Walker (Australia), Mattin (Basque Country), Luca Lum (Singapore), Bani Haykal (Singapore), Lee Weng Choy (Malaysia), Lee Gamble (UK) and Jessica Feldman (USA).


Attendance of this event is via Zoom, with live streams on the Liquid Architecture Facebook and YouTube channels.


More information can be found on the Liquid Architecture website, where you can also register. The event takes place at 6pm Melbourne time, 3pm in Singapore, while those in Poland can get a dose of Machine Listening with their coffee and breakfast at 8am.
