Seven Pleasures of Pris (2019) Improvising Ai robot duo with Multi-Layered Perceptron Neural Nets
Seven Pleasures of Pris (2019) was an album project created by two performing robots embedded with a substrate AI architecture fed by the embodied music dataset discussed in Vear 2018. The two robots were programmed to respond to the other's sound and to contribute to the ongoing improvisation live and in realtime. Each robot was controlled by its own AI and created music without any human intervention. Key to the implementation of the AI was the design and development of an affect module, a system of rules, together with a non-hierarchical design in the substrate AI. The results of this experiment found that the robots were listening to each other and co-creating, and crucially doing something inside musicking that was beyond mimicry or symbolic behavioural response.
