Unconditional Loop

November 17, 2019 9:35 AM

If humans have unconditional love and computers have conditional loops, what is robot love?

This is my favorite piece from a shelved fictional "robot band" project. At the time, I didn't have all the elements for what I had in mind, and now I'm not sure what constitutes a robot band. I had a drum machine playing the piano and a short track that just sped up the drum machine faster and faster to absurdity. There were some industrial sound effects. I'm sure there are other takes on robotic misconceptions of "music", but the truth is, AI can already make pleasing, non-mechanistic music. Here the android crosses the uncanny valley of simulated sensitive playing, expressing emotion, whether real or simulated no one can say.
