by Mar 21, 2024

The Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, in collaboration with partners on campus and within the Bloomington community, will delve into the profound impact of generative artificial intelligence on the music landscape with “AlgoRhythms: The World of Music and AI,” a dynamic pop-up summit set to unfold March 29 and 30.

The groundbreaking event will offer exploration, celebration and discussions on the evolving creative landscape. Contemplation and discussion with scholars and industry leaders will cover questions such as “What does it mean to be a music artist or composer in the age of AI?” and “Who will own AI-generated music?” Registration is now open. The summit is free to attend.

Event highlights include:

  • Thought-provoking panel discussions led by industry luminaries on crucial topics such as “Copyright Law in the Age of AI,” “AI Tools Empowering Artists,” “Startups in Music and AI” and “Emerging Creativity in AI.”
  • Networking opportunities to connect with leading national thinkers, startups and legal minds in the vibrant IU/Bloomington creative ecosystem. Attendees will have a chance to foster collaborations that bridge the gap between music, technology and law.
  • Hybrid sessions with a blend of in-person and online engagement through Zoom, ensuring accessibility and participation from a diverse audience.

The summit aims to be a catalyst for partnerships that fuel innovation through collaborations between the Jacobs School of Music, IU Innovates, the Maurer School of Law, the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing and Engineering, the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design, and the O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs, as well as the IU Herron School of Art + Design in Indianapolis. The collaboration extends to the Bloomington creative community through a strategic partnership with the Dimension Mill and Rock Paper Scissors.
