Silvia Rosani: Amotion
29. 10. 2021 – Žilina
Amotion connects the visitors’ voices to the acoustic and hybrid electroacoustic instruments involved and shape them all into a unique AI society. The dialogue is based on emotion detection, carried out live by a neural network model. The hybrid instruments imitates, contrasts or ignores the emotion detected in the sounds they hear. Their actions are determined by the history of the actions selected, like the live performers remember the strategies used during an improvisation. A work in progress was presented at the Werkleitz Festival (Halle, Germany) and its documentation was exhibited at the Ars Electronica Garden 2021, while slightly different versions will be implemented for the Museum of Transitory Art (MoTA) during SONICA Festival (Ljubljana, Slovenia) and the Nova synagoga in Žilina (Slovakia). The final version of the installation will travel to the new media center RIXC (Riga, Latvia) and make use of an app available on any device with an internet connection.
