Call out: Dreaming with Machines

Country:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

Are you interested in algorithmic technologies, music production and sampling within your music? 

Join Manchester sound artist Vicky Clarke for four days of making music with machine learning to create a series of audiovisual dreamscapes ready for transmission on the internet.

Machine learning is a branch of Artificial Intelligence (AI), where neural networks detect patterns in sets of data and use them to make predictions. As an emerging field in music making, sonic AI has great potential for how we compose, generate material and collaborate with machines. 

Open to people of marginalised genders aged 18-30*, on this project you’ll get the opportunity to explore a range of accessible tools to generate sound, text and images using a variety of open source training models. 

Together you’ll look at the work of groundbreaking artists and technologists working in the field and consider artistic, ethical and conceptual issues around bias, autonomy and creativity. 

There is no need to be able to code, the project is aimed at beginners! 

Dates and Location

5, 6, 9 and 10 May 2022
9.30am – 4.30pm
SeeSaw, Manchester, M1 6NG

We can cover travel costs for those who need it, plus a £25 daily allowance.

What’s Involved

On this project you will:

Learn about machine learning (a branch of AI) and how it can be used creatively for music making

Gain practical skills using a range of accessible tools and interfaces covering sound, text and image generation

Discuss our relationship to these emerging creative technologies and consider issues of bias, ethics and artistic autonomy

Create artworks; a series of dreamscapes and human-machine collaborations to share online
