It was so crazy, that it is one of the most wonderful performances I have ever seen!
That’s a comment from the audience after having experienced the Brazilian composer and performance artist Marcela Lucatelli on stage. Now you can experience her here at Sort/Hvid with THIS MUSIC IS AN EMBARRASSMENT TO HUMANITY.
It will be stand-up, performance, koncert, absolutely insane when Lucatelli performs a new version of the arch-Danish songbook of singalongs. Together with composer Kirstine Fogh Vindelev and AI artist Mirabelle Jones, she has let a computer program reinterpret the “holy” Danish singing tradition. When one pairs a traditional songbook with an artificial intelligence and an eccentric Brazilian performance artist, which interpretation of Denmark does one then end up with?
The national anthem and other traditional Danish songs have been confronted by the new innovative technology called OpenAI GPT-3 – a computer program that can produce texts as if they were written by a real human person. With Lucatelli’s human, unhuman voice, machine and human are morfed and we are guided behind the technology.
