Abstract

The aim of this paper is to is to discuss and demonstrate my current practice-based research into creative Ai and embodied robotics in music. But, as is often the case, when writing this paper I became more aware that I was not going to be able to deliver that which I had hoped to do in my abstract, but instead focus on something more aligned to this conference theme, and that is hybrid methodology. Don’t worry, there is still a performance of the robot in action, and I will still be taking you through my research. But what I want to draw out of that is the ‘ology’ bit, that is the study of a transformative method that has incorporated important elements of practice from robotics with elements of practice from music, and evaluate the worth of this hybrid process.
