Abstract
16bit:wolf is an imaginary band from an alternate universe. In this universe, the anthropologist R. traveled from the year 2107 to a contemporary Berlin. You can find her full story at ulteriorflux.com

R. is making music with a befriended A.I. named mosiva. This project is recreating their band 16bit:wolf.

I am using diverse methods of machine learning; GPT2, generative adversarial networks, and so on to imagine that band and drag them into existence.

Since the technology for a generalized A.I. (like in science fiction movies) does not exist yet, I am using narrow, specialized machine learning algorithms, bit and pieces of programming from all over the place, to create audio and visuals.

This is a collaboration between machine input and curated decisions, navigating input and output, and connecting it to a coherent piece. I feed the algorithms with my text, music, voice, and image to enable it to generate and produce its own version. From there I chose suitable fragments and turn them into audiovisual animations.

I use projects from github, google, openAI, and others and try to find their breaking points: where machine learning meets its limits. Here I can find a tangible connection, a true collaboration between me, the machines, and the synchronicity within.

We produce content and shape each other's ideas. This is our documentation.
