Stanford Live Presents KQED Silicon Valley Conversations: The Future of Music – Computer or Composer
Bing Concert Hall
Thursday, July 19 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
KQED’s Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, Tonya Mosley, will host a special evening of conversation and performance looking at how technology is influencing the future of music composition, production and performance. Explore what it is that makes us love music—and whether that love is possible without the human touch. From classical to jazz to EDM, music has always been marked by innovation and experimentation. But in recent years, we’ve seen the advent of software that uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to produce and compose music.
The evening will show us what a musician can do with their voice and a single instrument and we will see what is possible with AI technologies. Guests include Doug Eck, a research scientist for Google’s latest project, Magenta, Amy X Neuburg, a classically trained composer, and Ge Wang, Associate Professor at Stanford University in the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics.

KQED Passport is a new member benefit that gives eligible donors and supporters extended access to an on-demand library of quality public television programming online. The KQED Passport library currently offers members more than 1,000 episodes to watch, with new PBS and KQED programs being added weekly.
The library features episodes from popular programs like American Experience, American Masters, Antiques Roadshow, Nature, NOVA, and Masterpiece — including all five seasons of Downton Abbey. In addition to these signature series, the library is full of public television’s acclaimed arts, science, history, and lifestyle programs; including How We Got to Now, Earth a New Wild, Austin City Limits, and a rotating selection of films from Ken Burns — currently Jazz and Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson are available.
