Holly Herndon

Holly Herndon conducts, and duets with, her “AI baby” Spawn and PROTO vocal ensemble

Berlin-based US musician Herndon has explored the avant-garde of electronic pop since 2012.

For her third album Proto, Herndon developed the AI program Spawn and conducts (and duets with) her AI baby’; programmed with voice patches from an ensemble of human vocalists and designed to evolve with machine-learning.

In an intense wall of sound, human-sung melodies intertwine with synthetic voices, and the demimonde of Berlin’s nightclubs rubs up against Sacred Harp music in an astounding live experience.

Licensed venue: under 18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
