I recently returned from Perth, Australia, where I was attending the International Computer Music Conference. I was particularly thrilled by the performance of my work Goldstream Variations by fabulous Decibel Ensemble. The work highlighted pianist Stuart James performing with a machine learning algorithm developed by my colleague Ben Smith. I also presented a paper co-authored by one of our graduate students, Javier Omar Sanchez and myself on the use and application of the software patch. The paper is available in the writings section of this website.
