Robert B. Lisekexpo
expo in Concordia
Robert B. Lisek is an artist, mathematician and composer who focuses on systems and processes (computational, biological, social). He is involved in the number of projects focused on radical art strategies, hacktivism and tactical media. Drawing upon conceptual art, software art and meta-media, his work intentionally defies categorization. Lisek is a pioneer of art based on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Lisek is also a composer of contemporary music, author of many projects and scores on the intersection of spectral, stochastic, concret music, musica futurista and noise.
SIBYL is Artificial Intelligence that proposes new stories and generates new compositions. SIBYL is trained by techniques of composing by Pynchon, Burroughs and Xenakis. The project offers an innovative fusion between three domains: storytelling, experimental music and artificial intelligence. The project creates and tests new methods of generating music, stories and new types of audio-visual performance through interactions with autonomous AI agent. SIBYL is presented as performance and installation that uses recurrent neural networks, deep learning and analog sound-video synthesizers.
