The moon who makes the birds dream in the trees (2018)

This work was produced by training a model to predict audio one sample at a time. It generated all the audio heard in the piece by listening to a segment from a famous work of the Classical canon and trying to guess what comes next. The results were arranged to create the final piece. This is meant to raise numerous questions about the field of work created with AI. Specifically, who contributes the most to these works, who has the privilege to create and be audience to them, and how much does the integrity and accessibility of the algorithm contribute to the field and the value of the work.
