Lrn2Cre8 Project held its successful sold out Concert at the Vortex Jazz Club

Lrn2Cre8 Project held its successful sold out Concert at the Vortex Jazz Club

The Lrn2Cre8 Project held its successful sold out Concert at the Vortex Jazz Club in Dalston yesterday evening. It was the first concert ever in which the majority of the music had been written by a computer. And more importantly, a computer which has learned by itself to compose.

It was a musical journey starting with the Renaissance and then moving through Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods ending with 20th Century modernism, and modern folk and pop.

Finally, after the concert, the Mark d’Inverno quintet played a more informal exploration of jazz (classics and new works composed by AI and humans).

The concert is a result of machine learning research, funded by the European Commission, in the project Learning To Create (Lrn2Cre8) and ERC Advanced Grant 291156, Flow Machines.
