Meine Biografie:

For me it all started with a curiosity for mathematics, technology and computers. I was especially fascinated with cryptography and space travel. I realized, if I wanted to participate in creating the future I had to learn how computers and the internet worked and how to program and build machines. This lead me to study physics.

When studying statistical mechanics, I was fascinated by the principle of “universality”, which says some properties of systems can be largely independent of their underlying structure. Thats why, in my advanced studies, I specialized in the theoretical physics’ discipline of complex systems.
I studied Arabic and philosophy on the side.

I finished my studies at art school, with a Master of Arts in Digital Media, a course combining media art, media theory, media design and media informatics. I followed my passion for music and dance and picked study courses dealing with sound design, algorithmic composition and dance.

Now I produce artistic experiences of fundamental scientific questions. The works consist of visual art, new media art, electronic music, dance and instruments I design.

I have performed and exhibited at CTM Berlin, Ars Electronica in Linz, Transmediale Berlin and internationally in NYC, LA, Amsterdam and other places. I speak six natural languages and 10+ programming languages.

I also speak at conferences as an expert on VR (virtual reality), AR (augmented reality), XR (mixed reality) and AI (artificial intelligence) or on the future of work and / or entertainment..

The Impact of AI on Music Creation, Musik + Technologie Stuttgart

Talk — “AI for Music Creation”, Musik und Technologie 2019, conference, Stuttgart 2019

Description:
Artificial Intelligence is advancing at an exceptional rate-continually redefining the set of activities that were previously only achievable by humans. Indeed, even the creative industries have been impacted. But the dialogue about AI for creative activities doesn’t have to be one of conflict and replacement.
Recently, music technologists are using AI to extend what humans can do musically - to foster collaboration, to create rapid musical prototypes, and to create new modes of music consumption. Two pioneers in this field are the companies Landr and Melodrive. Landr uses AI to automatically master musical tracks, but also enables users to collaborate, share and promote their music. Melodrive is creating an AI that composes - and re-composes - music, so that it can be truly adaptive.

VR, AR and XR for Musicians and the Music Business Eco System, ITFS Stuttgart

Talk — “VR, AR and XR for Musicians and the Music Business Eco System”, ITFS (Internationales Trickfilm Festival), Stuttgart 2019

Description:
Applications and technologies using virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality have been on the rise throughout the last years. They enable their users to engage with and design unique worlds, which are immaterial, potentially free of the laws of physics and easy to share. Because of this exceptional amount of creative freedom these technologies have been hacked, used and adapted quickly by artists of all disciplines. In this talk, in a nutshell, conceptual artist and physician Byrke Lou looks at the impact and specifics VR, AR and XR technologies hold for Musicians and, maybe, the music ecosystem.
