Watch CTM 2018 MusicMakers Hacklab Talks on YouTube

During this past CTM Hacklab, participants invented collaborative performances that embraced the chaos, strangeness, and cultural anxiety surrounding the theme of AI, echoing the titular Turmoil of the 2018 festival edition. Hacklab fellows were inspired by a series of Input talks: Moritz Simon Geist’s fictitious market development and speculative products, Gene Cogan’s crash course on the technology behind machine learning in music and visual art, Estela Oliva’s survey of a few exciting artists working with AI, and Wesley Goatley’s examination of the politics and power lying behind opaque technological systems.
