METAL, MACHINES, AND MISCHIEF WITH DADABOTS
Musicians working with machine learning are paving the way to new sounds, new instruments, new workflows and new challenges. And it's really fun. Dadabots will walk you through their journey, encompassing: the re-animation of Kurt Cobain, the black metal Turing test, the Sinatra copyright strike, human vs AI beatbox battles, 24/7 generative livestreams, a VST plugin and more. They will show you what it's like to be musician-coders wielding neural nets as their instrument, collaborating with their favourite bands, building tools, running an R&D lab and advising on PhD research. They will talk about raw audio neural synthesis from RNNs to diffusion models and offer previews of their latest projects.
