Composer Benjamin Oliver and Riot Ensemble present contemporary works that explore creative applications of artificial intelligence (AI).

‘British soul sensation’ Hannah Williams joins forces with a new music superstar Riot Ensemble quartet to premiere Benjamin Oliver’s song cycle LOVE LETTERS. The work includes melancholic, absurd and dramatic expressions of love made with LovelaceGPT, a new AI text generation model developed by University of Southampton researchers.

AI music and text generation, as well as sound processing, feature in five distinctive works by leading young composers. The ‘startingly gifted’ Colombian-American soprano Stephanie Lamprea guests for three vocal pieces.

This event will last approximately 90 minutes, including an interval.

The LOVE LETTERS [WITH AI] project is supported by the University of Southampton Web Science Institute & Department of Music.
