Can a machine curate a music festival? Following related work on automatic music generation, big audio database analysis for musicology and the automatic jury panel for a dubstep remix competition, Nick Collins of Durham University will program a learning machine that judges and ranks contemporary piano music. The CurAItor will learn from over 100 recordings of notable contemporary piano music. This new musAIc will be presented in Darmstadt on 19 and 20 July. Please bring your own piano piece recordings (playable by a portable music device with stereo headphone minijack output) so that we can decipher its merits live on the spot. After Darmstadt, we will publish a call for recordings; the top three pieces, ranked by CurAItor, will be performed at Donaueschinger Musiktage in October 2019.
