Painting Music by AI – Film

Home > Portfolio > Audio-Visual Installations > Painting Music by AI – Film

Painting Music has been transformed into a 15-minute film produced by filmmakers Albert Lucas and Kim Beveridge funded by Aberdeen City Council and Creative Scotland.

Painting Music uses cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence techniques to create music from live painted drawings.

The software developed by AI developer Jack Caven and AI specialist Dr. Andrew Starkey translates tangible painted marks into audible sounds, in real time and unique for each performance. Japanese ink drawing as well as AI visual and aural outputs evolve onto a screen.

The film premiere was at Haddo House Art Festival as part of the exhibition Experimental Use of Space 2019.

Special thanks to videographer Calum McCready.
