Patar @Barely Constrained by CoCreaTive
Patar is an experimental electronic music project featuring Kıvanç Tatar, Philippe Pasquier, and MASOM. MASOM is a musical agent, an artificial intelligence (AI) architecture, making music. Together, three entities produce a live performance of experimental electronic music, live electroacoustic music, musique concrète, soundscape compositions, through structured improvisation. Patar’s performances experiments with a wide range of electronic music styles within the performance. The performances of Patar oscillate between ambient and noise while exploring the frontiers of the rhythmic and tonal, and using both electronic and acoustic textures.
This performance includes three piece. Each piece includes a different MASOM agent. MASOMs trained on Bernard Parmegiani, David Tudor, and Ryoji Ikeda, respectively. The details of the event
Comparing MASOM's output to random segment playback:
Here, we provide two recordings of MASOM's output in solo performance mode so that the listeners can decide on MASOM's performance.MASOM's output:
This track is a recording of the output of MASOM trained on Ryoji Ikeda's Test Pattern album.
This following track is a recoding of random audio segments from the same album, Bernard Parmegiani's De Natura Sonorum. We let our readers to decide MASOM's performance by comparing the random segment playback to the MASOM's output.
This track is a recording of the output of MASOM trained on Bernard Parmegiani's De Natura Sonorum album.
In this video, we explore the memory of a MASOM trained on Bernhard Parmegiani's De Natura Sonorum.
