Portait of composer Geoge Lewis

Experience the vanguard of music and technology in this exclusive world première at Royal Northern College of Music.

Following a year-long residency with RNCM PRiSM (Practice & Research in Science & Music), composer and professor George Lewis collaborates with staff and students on a new cutting-edge chamber work that features his Voyager system augmented with the latest Artificial Intelligence tools system plus flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, and tuba.

George Lewis first developed his Voyager system between 1985 and 1987. Widely referred to as the ‘virtual improvising pianist’, Voyager analyses aspects of the musical environment in real time, using results to guide an automatic ‘improvisation’ programme that generates both complex responses to input and independent behaviour that arises from its own internal processes.

In an evening of firsts, don’t miss your chance to experience this revolutionary piece of live music.
