Artificial Intelligence

Are computers the better composers?

In the music industry, artificial intelligence has become part of daily routine. But passion, emotions and spontaneity cannot be generated artificially. A statement for creativity.


What is actually happening in our heads?

Do we even have a personal taste of music? Or are our favourite songs nothing more than the mere sum of trained listening habits? The key to the ultimate sound experience is awareness.

Contemporary music

Why is contemporary music 100 years old?

Not a completed project but an eternal experiment. A mix of provocation of the familiar and continuity of the new. Contemporary music is an intangible but colourful world full of sounds and the desire for freedom.
