Watch robots generate improvisational jazz music and dance


1 Like

The problem they were having is that to really get into the flow of jazz, you have to listen for the notes that aren’t there. Fortunately that was easy to fix.

while (note=false)

The smaller Shimi robots figure out how to move based on an analysis of the music and Shimon generates an improvisation given a precomposed chord progression using a generative algorithm that jointly optimizes for higher level musical parameters and its physical constraints

What a novel definition of “improvisation.” Jazz may be nearly dead, but I don’t think automation will be the final nail in the coffin.

I think this is kiiinda cool, but the synth on the first robot literally hurt my ears. Ten seconds was plenty.
