AI-generated music for DISE

Conformity #16 is a piece composed by Jason Palamara in conjunction with various AI and machine learning applications and ML-enabled performance filters. The initial musical material was generated using magenta and AVATAR, and the resulting materials were filtered by a novel app called mml.contourizer, which constrains MIDI pitch data into a finite number of predetermined melodic contours. The ensemble plays a graphic score generated via mml.contourizer. IUPUI's DISEnsemble premiered this piece in their first in-person concert after the pandemic (Spring, 2021), accompanying the autonomously performed piano part via a Yamaha Disklavier. DISEnsemble performs live music mainly on second-hand electronics and hacked instruments.
