Alonso Trillo, R & Poliks, M. “Demiurge: a music of Babel,” Leonardo Journal.
We are here to explore the unfinished — to attempt a fragmentary and blurred snapshot of an ongoing research project exploring the musical application of Generative Adversarial Networks entitled Demiurge. The project was initiated in July 2020 as a collaboration between an international team of interdisciplinary artists and researchers led by Marek Poliks (instrument designer ⋲ creative vector) and Roberto Alonso Trillo (violin ⋲ creative vector). As its namesake, Demiurge asks questions about creation, specifically in the era of machine learning, and works to formalize a creative process endemic to and natural within a world of machine collaborators.
