Algorithms in Context: AI Sound Workshop and Artist Talk with Moisés Horta Valenzuela

Algorithms in Context (AiC) invites you to an artist talk and workshop by Moisés Horta Valenzuela aka 𝔥𝔢𝔵𝔬𝔯𝔠𝔦𝔰𝔪𝔬𝔰 (he/him). He is an autodidact sound artist, creative technologist and electronic musician from Tijuana, México. Valenzuela works in the fields of computer music, AI and history and politics of emerging digital technologies.

For his artist talk, Moisés Horta Valenzuela will be discussing the process of engaging with open-source AI software. Then he will discuss his challenges as a self-taught technologist and coder, the importance of hacking and building your own musical tools, as well as the philosophies behind his currently developing AI music instrument SEMILLA.

In this introductory machine learning workshop, tools to work with neural networks for sound synthesis will be introduced. The workshop‘s goal is to build a basic understanding of the underlying principles of deep learning and incorporate them into their existing sound design and music composition workflow. No programming knowledge is required, but it is welcome.

About Algorithms in Context

As a network of artists, researchers and students, AiC aims to foster critical debate and knowledge sharing on the topic of Algorithms, Artificial Intelligence systems in particular: From their potential for creative production to their impact on society, arts, culture, economy, environment, politics, and all of our daily lives. Through workshops and a series of online talks, thinkers and creatives are invited to explore the limits of technological advancements, discuss ethical and socio-political challenges and provide insights into their creative practice with AI systems. Over the course of this year, AIC will offer classes, provide students with extensive resources and establish a lab for AI and Robotics at the HfG.
