Opus Cope: Screening and Dialogue

May 15, 2023 @ 1:20 pm  |  DARC 108


Filmmaker Jae Shim screens his award-winning documentary Opus Cope: An Algorithmic Opera which celebrates the groundbreaking work of algorithmic composer David Cope (UCSC emeritus Professor) and the profound ways in which humans and machines (AI) can be creative.

David Cope has been a firm believer that creativity is everywhere, and his work reflects these values of compassion and understanding, where humans and AI are not necessarily at odds with each other. This collaboration between human and machine resulted from his own creative block in the 80’s which led to the first algorithmically composed opera.

Presented by the Music Department and cosponsored by the Arts Research Institute and The Humanities Institute.
