Do artists know copyright?

Sept. 26, 2017, 2:47 p.m.
Krzysztof Siewicz

Copyright affects us all as we are all authors nowadays. At the same time few artists know how to work without infringing copyright. Various customs evolve, but they rarely have anything in common with black letter copyright law. This year, at CopyCamp Antonio Roberts will tell us more about such customs.

Machines composing music at CopyCamp

Sept. 13, 2017, 10:14 a.m.
Krzysztof Siewicz

To replace composers with computers take a musical archive and a learning algorithm. A program that implements the algorithm will create a model of a digital composer, who in turn will compose own music. How many such composers will fit into your laptop’s hard drive? Join us at CopyCamp where Nick Briz will tell us more about using machine learning in music.
