Created by the American composer and saxophonist Steve Lehman and Frédéric Maurin, in close collaboration with Ircam, Ex Machina explores new musical directions by developing real-time interactions between the soloists and the machine within a large jazz ensemble. These two musicians share a number of aesthetic issues and ambitions that have led them to take similar paths in their respective ensembles.

Ex Machina is the result of work with Ircam’s Representations musicales team, directed by Gérard Assayag, and integrates devices created from the DYCI2 environment by Jérôme Nika into the compositional process and into the soloists’ improvisations in real time, the computer becoming, in turn, a generator of electronic orchestrations for the composers and a partner in improvisation for the musicians.
