REVIVE is an experimental electronic music project featuring the musical artificial intelligence MASOM, Kıvanç Tatar, Philippe Pasquier, and and generative visuals by Remy Siu. MASOM (which stands for Musical Agent based on Self-Organizing Maps) is a musical AI that has learned electroacoustic and electronic music by listening to a vast quantity of it. Together, the three sonic performers and three visual agents produce a live performance of experimental electronic music, electroacoustic music, musique concrète, soundscape, through structured improvisation. For each musician, a corresponding visual agent puts its sound and musical decisions into images thus revealing the musical gestures that are so often lost in electronic music performance

Members: Kıvanç Tatar, Philippe Pasquier, Remy Siu
