AI for All: Making Music with Machine Learning

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Machine-learning research involves a lot of math and a lot of code, but using it doesn’t have to. In this hands-on workshop, we’ll work with Latent Loops, a tool built with technology from the Magenta project of Google Brain. We’ll introduce the concept of a musical palette, demonstrate techniques for creating and composing with them, and show how they can help musicians of any level generate new melodic material.

This workshop is designed to show how tools built using ML can empower creativity in new ways. Musicians and students looking to get started making music are welcome to attend. Bring a laptop and headphones if you have them. If you use a DAW, make sure it’s installed.

** This workshop is free and open to the public as part of Moogfest’s The Joyful Noise of STEAM program, and is appropriate for children ages 14 and up. A festival ticket is not required to attend. 

** This workshop is limited in capacity and offered on a first come first served basis. Please plan to arrive at the venue at least 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the session. 

** Entrance is not guaranteed.
