Frida’s Ashes

—-

January 2019

R&D exploration of the life and art of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera by Mexican artist and producer Ignacio Jarquin. My role consisted in creating an Artificial Intelligence interactive audio environment using Rebecca Fiebrink’s open-source machine-learning software Wekinator and Pure Data. Working in collaboration with a small vocal ensemble of seven singers, this project investigated the potential of human-machine interaction in the context of musical improvisation.

The project was supported by University of Bristol’s Wickham Theatre and funded by Arts Council England.
