Énacteur is an AI-driven agent, designed to actively participate in live electroacoustic improvisation performances. Using machine listening, it analyzes the incoming sounds from the other musician(s), synthesizes sounds in response according to the compositional strategy it was trained on, and spatializes it to multiple channels in real-time.
Énacteur x Énacteur I is a binaural recording of a live improvisation, from a series of machine improvisation performances. It is performed by two AI agents derived from Énacteur. In this piece, the same system expresses two different behaviors picked up from two different training sets. The synergetic interaction between the two agents in space results in a sonic experience perceived as a whole.
