Abstract / Summary

This paper describes an AI system, Autopia, designed to participate in collaborative live coding music performances using the Utopia software tool for SuperCollider. This form of human-AI collaboration allows us to explore the implications of mixed-initiative computational creativity from the perspective of live coding. As well as collaboration with human performers, one of our motivations with Autopia is to explore audience collaboration through a gamified mode of interaction, namely voting through a web-based interface accessed by the audience on their smartphones. The results of this are often emergent, chaotic, and surprising to performers and audience alike.
