3rd Conference on AI Music Creativity (AIMC 2022)
13-15 September 2022, online
The 3rd Conference on AI Music Creativity integrates two overlapping research forums: The Computer Simulation of Music Creativity Conference (est. 2016) and The International Workshop on Musical Metacreation (est. 2012). The objective of the conference is to bring together scholars and artists interested in the emulation and extension of musical creativity through computational means and to provide them with an interdisciplinary platform in which to present and discuss their work in scientific and artistic contexts.
The 2022 Conference on AI Music Creativity will be hosted from Japan and held online. The three-day program will feature paper presentations, artistic sessions, panel discussions, workshops/tutorials, and three keynotes.
Further details can be found below and on the conference website:
# Conference theme
The theme of AIMC 2022 is:
"The Sound of Future Past — Colliding AI with Music Tradition"
This year we put the emphasis on implications of political, sociological and aesthetic nature arising when AI techniques & methods are applied to the generation of music modeled on traditional musical expressions and heritages. For example, AI involvement with musical traditions foregrounds issues regarding copyright, technocratic appropriation and dilution of musical expression specificities, standardization on genres, perpetuation of embedded musico-cultural biases and cliches, uniformization of the aesthetic experience as a result of indiscriminate usage of music corpora, to name but a few.
# Call for Participation/Contribution
