Bronze is a new technology that allows music creators to utilise AI and machine learning as creative tools for composition and arrangement. Bronze is also an audio file format which will revolutionise music playback, enabling artists to release non-static, generative, augmented music.
Philippe Parreno, Arca and Nicolas Becker have used Bronze to create a new work which will occupy the lobby of MoMA in New York for the next two years. Echo is a site-specific work involving sound, light and animated physical objects. Described by the artist as an auto-poetic system, the work will exist in the space, responding to itself and it’s surroundings endlessly.
