• Autopia: An AI Collaborator for Live Coding Music Performances

Lorway, Norah, Powley, Edward, Wilson, Arthur, Speakman, John A. and Jarvis, Matthew, 2020, Conference or Workshop, Autopia: An AI Collaborator for Live Coding Music Performances at ICLC 2020: International Conference on Live Coding, Limerick, Ireland, 5-7 Feb 2020.

Abstract or Description:

Live coding is “the activity of writing (parts of) a program while it runs” (Ward et al., 2004). One significant application of live coding is in algorithmic music, where the performer modifies the code generating the music in a live context. Utopia is a software tool for collaborative live coding performances, allowing several performers (each with their own laptop producing its own sound) to communicate and share code during a performance. We have made an AI bot, Autopia, which can participate in such performances, communicating with human performers through Utopia. This form of human-AI collaboration allows us to explore the implications of computational creativity from the perspective of live coding.
