Neural networks have risen in power and popularity over the last decade, offering new potential for musicians, but bring with them new anxieties and a steep learning curve. In this workshop led by coder Jules Laplace, we will attempt to dispense with superstition and understand what neural networks are all about and how they fit into the history of automatic music. We will demonstrate what is possible with neural networks today, discuss strategies for applying this technology to musical/artistic practice, and share metaphors for understanding what we are hearing when we listen to neural automata.
People should not need specific software or tools. No experience of coding is necessary for the workshop but is blatantly necessary if you want to do anything with this type of software.
Jules Laplace is an artist and programmer based in Berlin who works lately with neural networks. He worked on voice synthesis for Holly Herndon’s “Spawn” project and taught machines to break glass for Hito Steyerl’s “The City of Broken Windows”. The work “The Neural Auctioneer” was included in the NeurIPS 2018 Workshop on Machine Learning for Creativity.
