AI/ML music series: Metamorphosis composed by Hongshuo Fan.

Watch my interview with Hongshuo Fan on his music piece Metamorphosis. It is a real-time interactive audio-visual composition for one human performer and two artificial intellectual performers. Three performers will start by playing the same virtual ancient Chinese percussion instrument: Bianqing (磬). Then, by learning, imitating, having conflict and cooperating with each other, this instrument’s shape and sound will evolve gradually and the performers themselves.
