At the 2018 SXSW event in Austin, Texas, HAKUHODO i-Studio and Yamaha will be showing off a dynamic music installation that incorporates artificial intelligence.
'Duet with Yoo' is set to be equipped with the Yamaha AI Music Ensemble System, which has previously been used in concerts and other live performances. With this exhibit, musicians will be able to interact with the system to experience how artificial intelligence can take their performance to the next level. The interactive music installation is designed to give people the experience of feeling as though they are "playing with another musician."
Yamaha's proprietary AI Music Ensemble System analyzes performances in real-time and predicts tempo, timing and dynamics to create even more dynamic playing and listening experiences.
