Euskal Encounter is probably the longest running computer gathering in all Europe. On July 2020 the event was going to celebrate its 28th edition in Bilbao (Spain), but due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it has been forced to go online.
That hasn’t discouraged its organizers to create a party as big as every year, ready to receive more than 5.000 people online, with a program full of events, competitions, and conferences.
And there is where we wanted to get… Euskal Encounter #28 has invited SoundTrackFest’s founder and director Gorka Oteiza, to talk on Twitch this Sunday, July 26, 2020, at 18:00h, about ‘Artificial intelligence and music for the audiovisual media (movies, TV, and video games)’.
“Artificial Intelligence applied to tasks that have traditionally been considered ‘artistic, creative and abstract’, is a world with infinite possibilities to be explored. In this conference we will talk about music used for audiovisual purposes: music applied to cinema, TV, and video games. Can an AI replace a composer and generate music ‘from scratch’? Can it imitate a specific style? Is it possible to complete unfinished works of classical music with AI? Can TV series, reality shows, and episodic TV programs in general benefit from music generated ‘on the fly’ by a computer? Can the AI of a game build its music in a personalized way, depending on the tastes of the player and the dynamics and history of the game? What about the copyright of computer-generated works? Who owns those?”
