How to generate a symphony – Mark Gotham
At the Karajan Music Tech Online Conference 2020, founder-director of the social enterprise “Four Score and More” Mark Gotham talked about how to generate a symphony. Beethoven began working on a 10th symphony shortly before his death. He was unable to finish the work, and he left behind only a few sketches for it. Now, an international team of musicologists and computer scientists plans to use artificial intelligence (AI) to create a plausible completed version of the symphony. Their aim, so to speak, is to pick up Beethoven's pen right where he last put it down. Mark Gotham who is a member of the expert team explains in this talk the particular starting points and methods they are using in order to generate Beethoven's 10th symphony.
