WALSHE: THE TEXT SCORE DATASET
Join us for the UK premiere of an eclectic exploration of AI-generated music from Jennifer Walshe’s new anthology: ‘The Text Score Dataset 1.0’
Since 2017 Jennifer Walshe has been engaged in a quixotic enterprise, the creation of a massive – one might say definitive – dataset of text scores. Walshe’s Text Score Dataset 1.0 now comprises over 3,000 text scores, running to almost half a million words, ranging from Fluxus event scores to compositions written in the last year.
Walshe created the Text Score Dataset 1.0 in order to be able to use it as training material for Machine Learning algorithms, so that new generations of text scores could be created. Commissioned by PRiSM Centre at the Royal Northern College of Music.
The night will also include brand new text scores created by the audience using AI text generators. This will be a relaxed performance.
Performers include Megan Steinberg (turntable), James McIlwrath (viola/objects), Neil Luck (keys/objects), James Creed (guitar), Peter Nagle (cello), and more friends!
