Triple Point (Pauline Oliveros, Doug van Nort, and Jonas Braasch): Merging Artificial Intelligence and Free Improvisation
4PM: FREE  Lecture/Demo of research project CAIRA

7PM: Tickets: $10  Performance of Triple Point as a trio as well as in a quartet with FILTER.

This presentation will present the musical ensemble Triple Point as well as the the research project CAIRA, focused on merging artificial intelligence and free improvisation. Specific works undertaken within this context will be discussed at 4PM, which span research and creation practices Later in the evening, at 7PM, Triple Point will perform as a trio as well as in a quartet with FILTER.

Triple Point - Pauline Oliveros, Doug Van Nort, Jonas Braasch - is   an improvising trio whose core instrumentation is soprano   saxophone (Braasch), digital accordion synthesizer (Oliveros) and   interactive electronics (Van Nort, GREIS system) . The name refers   to the point at which all three phases of matter coexist in   thermodynamic equilibrium, which is a metaphor for how they create   dialogue as performers. The musical interaction is centered around   an interplay with proper acoustics, digitally modeled acoustics   (from the Roland V-accordion) and electronics. Van Nort transforms   the sound of the other players on-the-fly, Oliveros changes   between timbres and explores the boundaries of a variety of   virtual instruments, and Braasch explores extended technique   including long circular-breathing tones and multiphonics. At times   the result is of a blended acoustic/electronics source that is   indistinguishable without careful listening, while other times the   layers becomes wildly apparent. This musical project is also a   performance laboratory for their research in developing   intelligent machine improvisation partners, currently within the   context of the CAIRA research project.

CAIRA  is the Creative Artificially Intuitive and Reasoning Agent   project, currently underway at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.   It is funded by the National Science Foundation's CreativeIT   initiative and involves the member of Triple Point as well as   Prof. Selmer Bringjsord from the Cognitive Science dept., and has   included a number of graduate students. The goal is to explore   models of creativity and the creation of systems that act as   musical improvisation partners, merging a top-down reasoning-based   view with a bottom-up "intuitive" approach focused on listening   and spontaneity. The "artificially-intuitive" component of the   project is known as FILTER, and is a real-time improvising   partner. The reasoning component has focused on advancing our   understanding of the logical decision processes that underlie   musical performance decision-making, for example over long time   periods and between musical sessions.
