IOM – AIM Research “The Art of Modelling Instability in Improvisation” presents a workshop (concert & lecture) that invites audience to participate in a sound an visuals emerging environment while researching communication, expectation, confirmation, surprise, unpredictability, risk taking, destabilisation, problem finding-creating-solving, creativity. As a state of the art artistic research, IOM-AIM Research investigates, and offers possibilities to model and transform, primary the unstable aspects of musical improvisation by humans.
IOM - AIM Interactive Interdisciplinary Improvisational Orchestral Machine – Artificial Improvisation Machine, is also an environment as a tool in which artificial improvisors (computers, speakers, projectors, sensors - microphones, ultrasone distance sensors, cameras) audience (for instance by means of an interactive app) and human improvisors as independent actants interactively cooperate and perform. The environment is developing its own DNA, has been taught, learns from and communicates with itself, past and current experiences and by doing so, establishes a personal identity, thinking style and way of creating. In the past, IOM-AIM has in settings with multiple speakers (from 4 to 24), and projectors (1 – 4), collaborated successfully with around 87 human artists: a variety of software programmers, individual improvising and interpreting musicians, graphic designers, visual artists, musical acoustical ensembles and orchestras. Artistic themes have been Instability, Composing Jazz, Musician’s Profile, The Art of Memory, Exploring the Space, Transforming the Space, interactive Cathedral of Thorns, Mimeses, Concatenation, Some Rules in the Zoo and Communication and Flow.
