This paper discusses the technical process and artistic intent of a concept music album co-authored by a human and Artificial Intelligence. The project finishes with an album of several compositions. The album begins with a composition that is generated by the author alone, a self-taught musician and a technologist. The compositions that follow are co-authored by an open source neural network and the author. The neural network is trained by the author, who has turned his compositions into mathematical data which can be fed to the neural network. The album ends with a composition that is completely generated by the trained neural network. The goal of the project is to express the rise of Artificial Intelligence in a musical way and speculate on the future of Artificial Intelligence. The author uses music, mathematics, and the emerging machine learning field to create a musical story. It aims to question about the future where automation takes over the human labor in various fields including creative areas like music production and art making.
