Patar is an experimental electronic music project featuring Kıvanç Tatar, Philippe Pasquier, and MASOM. MASOM is a musical agent, an artificial intelligence (AI) architecture, making music. Together, three entities produce a live performance of experimental electronic music, live electroacoustic music, musique concrète, soundscape compositions, through structured improvisation.
Patar’s performances experiments with a wide range of electronic music styles within the performance. The performances of Patar oscillate between ambient and noise while exploring the frontiers of the rhythmic and tonal, and using both electronic and acoustic textures.
This performance includes three piece. Each piece includes a different MASOM agent. MASOMs are trained on Bernard Parmegiani, David Tudor, and Ryoji Ikeda, respectively.
