Machine Learning Soundtracks

Hype Cycle ­is a series of futurist films exploring human-machine collaboration through performance and emerging technologies. I was tasked with imagining what these machines should sound like and creating music for the trailer. I approached this by playing an improvisation on piano and programming a digital instrument to respond to the performance.
