Outline

Artificial intelligence (AI), which has learned the characteristics of musical composition, and a human DJ take each other’s musical selections. AI analyze the DJ’s music and chooses the next song, uses the turntable to make mixes, and sometimes surprises us with musical selections that go beyond our imagination. People explore the possibilities of dialogue and co-creation through this discussion between two DJs.
