Extending a composer’s creativity

KIKK (nov 03 – 05th 2016,  Namur, Belgium) KIKK is an international festival of digital and creative cultures. Its interest lies in the first place in the artistic and economic implications of new technologies. The event gathers people of all backgrounds from all around the world. They are designers, scientists, makers, entrepreneurs, artists, architects, developers or musicians. They come to KIKK to share professional experiences and innovative ideas, to present an artwork or a project. 

This year KIKK Festival will analyze how art and science meet in contemporary culture. Meeting can also means to come into opposition. Activists and critical designers are scrambling systems to question surveillance and privacy issues.

François Pachet will highlight recent research in the area of music creativity and stress out the technical challenges, as well as the potential applications to existing and future industrial domains of digital entertainment.
