Nokia Bell Labs Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) program presents two collaborations that humanize technology by fusing it with art.
Reeps One, world leading beat-boxer and vocal experimentalist, will premiere a live version of his 'Second Self’ which demonstrates the creative potential of AI.
The International Contemporary Ensemble and E.A.T. artist-in-residence Lainie Fefferman will play the music of award winning Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir. The music will be augmented by technology developed by E.A.T., transforming audience cell phones into loud speakers.
