This is the project website & blog of MIRLCAuto: A Virtual Agent for Music Information Retrieval in Live Coding, a project funded by the EPSRC HDI Network Plus Grant - Art, Music, and Culture theme.


This project aims at creatively exploring the use of big collections of sound data in live coding performance through the use of machine learning and music information retrieval algorithms and the use of a live coder virtual agent companion that can complement a human live coder in her/his practice. The core themes of legibility, agency and negotiability in performance are researched by means of the collaboration between the human live coder, the virtual agent live coder and the audience.

Stay tuned about forthcoming online workshops and concerts during this Winter 2020!
