"Tony Lugo and Mats Gustafsson never met.
Drums & electronics. Sax & electronics.
A connection was made through a mutual record label and friends.
Music was sent back and forth.
A third player was invited. The machine.
AI tools and algorithms. Interactive improvised music. Extended techniques of humans and machines. Learning processes. Autopoiesis. Illogicity.
'Can a machine be responsible for its actions?' asks Christian Munthe (Professor of practical philosophy at Göteborg University, Sweden) in his essay Who is the player?
The new jazz? The old jazz?
WTF IS IT?
PLAY IT LOUD."
