AV Performance
This completely generative performance is inspired by the drone war videos available from all the news. Landscape and route of the drone is completely generated by the machine learning algorithms behind. The drone is physically modeled and the complete flight is simulated by using weather data of the area. Also the complete event is controlled by an AI, is it a spy mission or a strike? A test flight? The music is generated in analog using status data of the virtual drone as input. Enjoy the flight. (ca. 20 minutes)
