Improvisation performance with the android for NIKELAB RADIO


 
Keiichiro Shibuya joined the project ““NIKELAB RADIO*” run by NIKE Japan which to deliver the contents of (x)SESSION, a crossover of physical expression and music.
 
“NIKELAB RADIO*” is under the concept of NIKELAB and is always an experimental place as a LAB. Breaking down the boundaries of sport, culture, and generation combines different values to create innovations.
 
The android Alter3 listens to Shibuya’s improvised piano and sings in real-time, without any pre-written program of melodies or chords, taking human and android improvisation to the next level.
