Abstract
In this paper we present the recent developments in the AI-terity instrument. AI-terity is a deformable, non-rigid musical instrument that comprises a particular artificial intelligence (AI) method for generating audio samples for real-time audio synthesis. As an improvement, we developed the control interface structure with additional sensor hardware. In addition, we implemented a new hybrid deep learning architecture, GANSpaceSynth, in which we applied the GANSpace method on the GANSynth model. Following the deep learning model improvement, we developed new autonomous features for the instrument that aim at keeping the musician in an active and uncertain state of exploration. Through these new features, the instrument enables more accurate control on GAN latent space. Further, we intend to investigate the current developments through a musical composition that idiomatically reflects the new autonomous features of the AI-terity instrument. We argue that the present technology of AI is suitable for enabling alternative autonomous features in audio domain for the creative practices of musicians.
