I believe the advancement of artistic and imaginative intelligence depends on human-computer collaboration. Specifically, I use computers to search the world of music and discover universal verities in order to escape the cycle of non-progressive art.
My aim is to encourage the survival of music as a progressively human expression of art.
My work is aimed at the creation of an emotionally charged, passionate musical language to act as a transcendent intrusion on the all too often derivative work that has plagued us in the first years of the 21st century.
There are many dangers in creating art that acts counter to the human nervous system, and a meaningful way forward isn’t manageable without mastering the devices previous music has employed to engage so successfully with our brains. Software can survey an incredibly large musical corpus and generate material that responds to the perceived patterns and expectations found throughout the entirety of human musical practice. Incorporating this historic bias is what differentiates my work from that of strictly rule-based and neural network approaches to computational creativity.
