Percussionist Taps into AI Possibilities, Challenges

Maddie A. McCoy

A Tempo this Saturday (4/27 at 7 pm) features a conversation with percussionist Lisa Pegher about an upcoming production incorporating elements of AI.

Even before Chat GPT hit the mainstream, percussionist Lisa Pegher was already wondering what possibilities artificial intelligence and other developing technologies might hold for music and musicians. Together with the Iceberg New Music collective of composers, she has put together a program that looks at the influence of technology on the evolution of percussion in the past, and how it might be used in the future to make music. A Tempo host Rachel Katz chats with Pegher this week about her upcoming performance May 17 at The DiMenna Center in New York, and the types of conversations musicians are having when it comes to A.I.

Rachel Katz is the host of A Tempo which airs Saturdays at 7 pm.
