KTONAL (https://ktonal.com/) is a group of composers dedicated to AI-powered art with a main focus on music. Founded in October 2020, KTONAL conducts research, writes code, and composes music and audiovisual pieces. Neither an artists collective nor a group of artists, KTONAL is a unique collaborative structure where five Berlin-based composers conceive, experiment and execute works they collectively author. Each KTONAL’s member has many years of experience with electro-acoustic music and intermedial art as well as with more traditional instrumental concert forms. In its first year of collaboration, KTONAL has developed several software packages to enable its artistic production, published sound studies on its social media channels and composed its first Opus “Le Mystere des Voix Neuronales”, which was performed at the AIMC(Artificial Intelligence Music Creativity) Conference in Graz Austria. In addition, a presentation and a discussion on “Artificial intelligence and music composition” were held for students as part of the KiK discussion class at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler Berlin. Members: Antoine Daurat, Björn Erlach,Roberto Fausti,Genöel von Lilienstern, Dohi Moon.
