Jennifer Walshe - solo concert & artist talk

AI has been a particular focus for composer and performer Jennifer Walshe over the past decade. Described by the Irish Times as "the most original compositional voice Ireland has produced in the last 20 years", she used AI to rework the history of early Western music on her album A Late Anthology of Early Music Vol. 1: Ancient to Renaissance (2020). The solo set she will play in the intimate setting of JAKI is based on this music. In the subsequent conversation with journalist Leonie Reineke, Walshe will provide further insights into her artistic work, in particular her work with AI.

Jennifer Walshe was born in Dublin, Ireland. Her music has been commissioned, broadcast and performed worldwide. She has received grants and awards from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts New York, the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program, the Darmstadt International Music Institute and the Akademie Schloss Solitude, among others. Recent projects include TIME TIME TIME, an opera written in collaboration with philosopher Timothy Morton, and THE SITE OF AN INVESTIGATION, a 30-minute epic for Walshe's voice and orchestra commissioned by the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland. THE SITE has been performed by Walshe and the NSO, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and the Lithuanian State Symphony Orchestra. Walshe has worked extensively with AI. ULTRACHUNK, created in 2018 in collaboration with Memo Akten, features an AI-generated version of Walshe. A Late Anthology of Early Music Vol. 1: Ancient to Renaissance, her third solo album released on Tetbind in 2020, uses AI to rework canonical works from early Western music history. A Late Anthology was voted Album of the Year by The Irish Times, The Wire and The Quietus. Walshe is currently Professor of Composition at the University of Oxford.
