16bit:wolf is an imaginary band from an alternate universe by the artist and an A.I.
Since the technology for a generalized A.I. (like in science fiction movies) does not exist yet, cylixe is using narrow, specialized machine learning algorithms, bit and pieces of programming from all over the place, to create audio and visuals.
This is a collaboration between machine input and curated decisions, navigating input and output, and connecting it to a coherent piece. cylixe feeds the algorithms with her text, music, voice, and image to enable it to generate and produce its own version. From there cylixe choses suitable fragments and turn them into audiovisual animations.
The artist uses projects from github, google, openAI, and others and try to find their breaking points: where machine learning meets its limits. Here cylixe can find a tangible connection, a true collaboration between me, the machines, and the synchronicity within.
