MORNING COFFEE AT G.A.P WITH MAJELLA CLARKE
October 22th, 2020 / 10-12:00 pm
Welcome to Morning Coffee at G.A.P, an informal event organised by Globe Art Point. The guest for our next session is an Australian Conductor, Multi-instrumentalist, Artist and Artificial Intelligence Strategist Majella Clarke who will give a presentation/workshop on using data and AI in composition and performance.
The first hour Majella will give an overview of the AI technology evolution in composition – listening to about 7-8 examples. The second hour we will use some of the AI to create performances and a composition.
Participants can bring their own laptop or work in groups with others with a laptop.
Place: Malminkatu 5, map. Our facilities are accessible on the street level, assistant dogs are welcome, there is no accessible toilet in the office space.
You can find us easily: when you enter Malminkatu from Runeberginkatu/Kamppi metro station turn right, G.A.P is at the end of the street on the right side, located in a pink building.
About Majella Clarke
My work uses data, algorithms and artificial intelligence to create compositions, sound and sonic art that can also be used in live performance. Live performances draw upon data visualizations to create, inspire and experiment with prescribed and notated sounds often using percussion and/or electro-acoustic recordings. My multi-instrumental background (Piano, Oboe, Violin, etc) provides versatility in performance and sound experiments. Participation and inclusion of audience and non-skilled musicians, in collaboration with skilled musicians, is a feature of my work. As a conductor, I explore the possibilities of inclusive performance through the practice of conduction (improvisation, composition and performance unified through conducting). I use Artificial Intelligence in my performances to enhance creativity – rather than replace it. The conservation and sustainability of natural environments is of critical concern to me and thus a motivating driver of my practice.
