Oded Ben-Tal on the Emerging Digital Improviser

Oded Ben-Tal (Kingston University) visits MTI and the Institute of Creative Technologies on Wednesday, 8 February to discuss "From algorithmic composition to live electronics, or an emerging digital improviser". Ben-Tal will describe his mixed (acoustic + electronic) compositions. He will start from pieces with fixed tape parts generated algorithmically, but will focus primarily on the implementation of simple machine listening strategies for live, interactive work. At issue will be the question at which point (if at all) does this become an improvising system.
