For the past fifteen years, multi-instrumentalist jazzman Bernard Lubat has worked closely with Marc Chemillier and Gérard Assayag on computer systems that promote improvised human-machine co-creativity. As a prelude to the release of the CD, this day on Bernard Lubat will provide the opportunity to hear interactions between a musician and software in an encounter combining performances, conferences, and discussions. Lubat will give his point of view during an "investigation" into his conceptions of music and the world.
Surrounded by specialists in computer music and complexity science, Lubat will discuss the role of technologies in society at a time when democracies are confronted with algorithms for manipulating public opinion. He will also talk about his relationship with composer Pierre Boulez, a selection of whose works will be performed on this occasion. The day will end with a completely new experimental workshop. Bernard Lubat will improvise in duo with a "virtual Pierre Boulez" generated with the help of creative software.
