DIGITAL CHOC 2017 is a music event in Tokyo with live performance event ‘Yokubou suru kikai (lit. a machine with desires) – Live Machine’.
This is a French-Japanese media art event, being held in Tokyo this month. In addition to the AI DJ, there is also performances by German and French media artists.
At this event, the AI DJ is getting a lot of attention in particular. The concept of which is to create an experimental performance using the best technology while feeling out how a human and artificial DJ go together in terms of expression. This has been done 5 times in the past. Famous Japanese media artist Rhizomatiks (Daito Manabe) performed at AI DJ creator Qosmo’s Nao Tokui’s event ‘2045’ has caused a wave of interest. Each performance is updated from the previous, and this time the DJ could have more physical control using real records and turn table. They performed a ‘Back 2 Back SET’ that is a fusion of human and AI DJ elements that stunned the audience.
Once again this time, the AI DJ performance also with Nao Toku, and they put on an updated version ‘Back 2 Back SET’, so good you’d be hard set peeling your eyes away from the show!
