EAR WAVE EVENT: Bill Dietz in Art in America
Updated: Nov 22, 2020
invert/extant author Bill Dietz has been getting some well-deserved attention with the recent issue of EAR WAVE EVENT that consisted of AI-generated music reviews.
Nice feature on it called Can a Neural Network Write Criticism? in the recent issue of Art in America.
Renée Reizman: “Dietz and Sullender fed a neural network thousands of articles from publications like Pitchfork, The Wire, and Spin, and then invited musicians to read the generated text and create music to fulfill the AI’s fantasies. The result is a strange, nearly incoherent music publication and a wildly imaginative challenge for composers.”
