Algorithms and Karaoke Ponds: Alice Eldridge

My recent travels to Budapest for EvoMUSART 2006 brought me in contact with artists from around the world who are using technology in creative ways. One of those people is Alice Eldridge, an artist, musician, and researcher from England. Alice works with interactive music systems, incorporating evolutionary computing techniques, AI, and other scientific techniques. 

Her website,, features a variety of music clips, and descriptions of her live performances. Pictured above is Self Karaoke Pond:

"I got a bit frustrated with some 'interactive art' which didn't let you do very much. So this piece is an audio installation which makes the visitor create all the samples and then 'remixes' them using a generative system."
