The system behavior of Artificial Neural Networks

To what extent can Artificial Intelligence be a creative partner in music production? How capable are musicians when given precise machine-like instructions? The aim of this thesis is to apply the system behavior of artificial neural networks to musical processes. People themselves become a learning neural network and compose pieces of music that are subsequently evaluated, sorted, selected, and reassembled by a human being – the trainer. 18 pieces of music were created, which were assembled into two musical productions that are documented in a film.
