Demiurge synthesis engine
A set of electronic compositions based on the materials generated by the Demiurge synthesis engine, a music machine-learning platform comprising a tripartite neural network architecture developed by Roberto Alonso, Marek Poliks and a team of collaborators at the Hong Kong Baptist University.
The fluid boundaries of the Debris move between linked theoretical discussions that range from archaeomusicology to new materialism, from the consideration of agency and mediation to an understanding of Debris as a Deleuzian assemblage, as an Adornian constellation, as an exemplification of swarm intelligence, or as a platform with its own network topology.These human-in-the-loop interactions, devised as overlapping narratives, offsprings of what we see as ubiquitous forms of xenobestiality, have been begotten by Didem Coskunseven (France/Turkey) / Mariam Gviniashvili (Georgia/Norway) / Kyoka (Japan/Germany) / Dariush Derakhshani (Germany/Iran) / David Q. Nguyen (USA) /Bihe Wen (China) / Stylianos Dimou (Greece) / Iván Ferrer Orozco (Mexico/Spain).
