We will present a new possibility for music performance expanded by technology, using Yamaha Corporation’s AI Ensemble System, which allows machines to understand and accompany human music performance.

Live performances will be held in Innovation Hall on the 7th floor of National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (Miraikan) during Digital Content Expo 2017. In the performance, the AI Ensemble System follows human music performance and plays in harmony.

There will be two series of performances: a two-piano series and an ensemble series featuring an euphonium. The two-piano live performance will feature Akai Ryusei or Yomi who are both active pianists on the Internet, and the AI Ensemble System which will reproduce Matsuken-sensei’s piano performance while synchronizing with the human pianist’s performance. The euphonium live ensemble will be a virtual duet or quartet featuring euphonium performance by Yoh Imamura accompanied by AKIBA WINDS’ performance reproduced by the AI Ensemble System.
