Making Music in VR with the Glad Scientist

Demo by The Glad Scientist.

Daniel Sabio (The Glad Scientist) will discuss the basics and provide a short demonstration of his methodology for composing songs in VR with SoundStageVR, a Google codebase designed for music creation in virtual reality on "physical" software instruments.

He will also allow time for participants to step into his virtual studio to jam to their own hearts' desires.

Us, Aggregated (Web Project)

Project by Mimi Onuoha.

"Us, Aggregated" is a collection of photos from my family's personal collection set alongside images programmatically categorized as similar by Google's image algorithms. In addition to highlighting the smart/dumbness of the algorithm, the piece engages with the tension between individuals and the collective, highlighting the performative poetry of living in a world where, though millions of photos are taken, shared, and uploaded each day, we still see something unique in our own.

#AiTL (Machine Learning Art)

Demo by Streetcat.media and The Glad Scientist.

DevFest attendees can experiment with Google’s Artificial Intelligence creative platform - Magenta - in this one hour interactive play demo. This demo will allow users the chance to duet with an AI and play the city of Atlanta. Play the city of Atlanta, you ask? Yes, and with a synth-tastic friend!

For part of this project, we have collected field recordings from various parts of Atlanta and have created unique song banks of ambient noise clips that users can arrange into a composition that is truly, uniquely Atlanta.
