    In-Person Q&A with the band on Oct. 28

    Can Artificial Intelligence imitate distinct sounds? That’s what American post-pop group Yacht sets out to discover in this provocative exploration on art and technology. Yacht invites a computer to analyze their back catalogue and assist in the composition of their seventh album. Melodies, rhythms, and even lyrics are generated by an AI system but arranged, performed, and recorded by the increasingly frustrated band, putting their notions of artistic authenticity to the test. A sly, brilliant examination of the creative process.
