[ISEA2015] Artist Statement: Arne Eigenfeldt (loadbang) – BEATS BY GESMI

Artist Statement

Generative System developed in MAX (2014)

GESMI is a fully autonomous computationally creative system that generates style-specific electronic dance music based upon a machineanalysed corpus. The corpus consists of 24 Breakbeat and 24 House tracks that have been transcribed by human experts. Aspects of transcription include musical details, timbral descriptions, signal processing, and descriptions of overall musical form. This information is then compiled in a database, and machine-analysed to produce data for generative purposes. GESMI began producing complete breakbeat tracks in March 2013.

  • Arne Eigenfeldt (loadbang) is a composer and creator of computationally creative musical systems. His EDM system – GESMI – has been presented at festivals in Australia, Italy, Brazil, and Canada. He is based in Vancouver, Canada
