27 November 2020 | Panel: Music & AI

For the second talk in the series, we will focus on the composition and performance of music, and how they are affected, complemented, assisted or threatened by the rise of AI. Following the panel discussion we will hear a live set from electronic producer Anomie. 

Panelists are Dr. Goetz Richter, a musician and philosopher working at the University of Sydney’s Conservatorium of Music, and Dr. Oliver Bown, an academic, creative artist and programmer and Senior Lecturer and Co-Director of the Interactive Media Lab at UNSW. The talk will be moderated by Jochen Gutsch, Cultural Program Coordinator at the Goethe-Institut in Sydney, and an active musician. After the talk we will hear a live set from Anomie (real name Sofie Loizou), a producer who brings together nuanced electronics with forward-thinking dancefloor sensibilities. She recently contributed to the Goethe-Institut project Sound of X.

This event will be live streamed in YouTube. If you live in Sydney, please join us in the small live audience at the Goethe-Institut (Covid-safe, limited seats, registration only).
