MetamusicX explores novel performative and compositional creative practices that intersect music (past and future), art, digital humanities, and contemporary philosophy. This research cluster focuses on three primary research areas:
Hypermusic, Artificial Intelligence, and Blockchain
Investigating future modes of artistic creation at the intersection of music, digital art, AI, and complex notational systems.
- New methods for music composition with AI: music synthesis and analysis with Periodic Spacetime Sequences (2021-present)
- Music NFTs: blockchain technologies for artistic research in music (2022)
In its combination of practice-based research and conceptual investigations, MetamusicX reevaluates the role, function, and purposes of musicians in contemporary society, arguing for a new breed of musicians — ones who are not only skilled in their craft but are also capable of operating at the intriguing boundaries of human and posthuman creativity.
