Abstract / Summary

Live coding is “the activity of writing (parts of) a program while it runs”. One significant application of live coding is in algorithmic music, where the performer modifies the code generating the music in a live context. Utopia3 is a software tool for collaborative live coding performances, allowing several performers (each with their own laptop producing its own sound) to communicate and share code during a performance. We propose an AI bot, Autopia, which can participate in such performances, communicating with human performers through Utopia. This form of human-AI collaboration allows us to explore the implications of computational creativity from the perspective of live coding.
