SANDBOX RESIDENCY with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra.
The Birth of AI
I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and write a new work exploring one of our time’s most fascinating and challenging subjects: Artificial Intelligence. The development of AI and it’s rapidly changing pace is already transforming human roles in society. Significant disruptions are about to reach us in various fields. It is essential to question these developments shaping our world for years to come, whether through robots, machine learning, or other means. In the piece, I will use electronic musical instruments and wearables as well as AI software to generate ideas rather than come up with them on my own. Stay Tuned.
The 2022.23 season will launch the SPCO’s Sandbox Composer Residency program — a new initiative for engaging composers and the community in the creation of new music. Over the next several seasons, three composers will participate in innovative and intensive multi-week residencies with the SPCO, in a program designed to foster a spirit of shared discovery and the creation of a significant body of new music. Viet Cuong, Clarice Assad and Gabriela Lena Frank have been selected to work with SPCO musicians as the inaugural Sandbox composers.
