Rewire in the New Music Lab-Lecture performance: Diegetic Operands with Farzaneh Nouri

5 April @ 16:3017:30

Farzaneh Nouri will host a performance lecture based on her work Diegetic Operands, a performance that is the outcome of a research project that speculates the aesthetic potentiality of non-representational data in the framework of machine improvisation. Two live algorithms were developed and programmed to autonomously participate in an improvisational performance. They handle decision-making, sound generation, and spatialisation tasks, communicating through internal computing processes and hardware performance data rather than representational sonic data. This approach allows the agents to understand their improvisational environment and respond with sound generation based on recognized patterns within the hardware. The aim is to re-think standard approaches to musical agent design in order to instantiate novel processes and to explore what aesthetics, possibilities, and new forms of  collaboration and interfacing such systems can offer.

Farzaneh Nouri (Farzané) is a musician, researcher, and sound artist based in the Netherlands. Interested in experimental approaches to sound, science, and technology, she explores various disciplines such as electroacoustic music composition, computer science, and linguistics. As tools in her artistic practice, she uses creative coding, field recording, live electronics, and acoustic and programmable instruments. Her recent pieces investigate complex systems, natural algorithms, and human-machine interaction. Farzané composes for live performances, interactive installations, films, VR, and multi-sensory experiences. The focus of her current research is on artificial intelligence methods in the framework of free improvisation in electroacoustic music.
