Archon is an open source data interface. It provides an interactive layer to Demiurge, a deep learning audio synthesis engine developed by Marek Poliks and Roberto Alonso. Archon, working in concert with Demiurge, makes most of the music on this record.Archon was developed with the belief that the future of music will replace (and is replacing) instruments and instrumentality with algorithmic verticalities capable of deploying and recombining the literal historical entirety of recorded audio according to affect-based macro-categories. Making music will need to change from a realtime experience to one of prompt-based audio generation, results management, and readymade conformity-driven refinement operations. In response, Archon facilitates a dynamic, behaviorally-adaptive, interpretive relationship between a musician and a data entity reinjecting intimacy, proximity, and instrumentality into the higher-level data management activities that will constitute the future of music-making. Archon is written in Python and Supercollider. Demiurge is written in Python. All images and most of the texts used in the artwork of this album were generated using AI models. They are different representations of Archon and, in the case of the texts, Archon talking about itself. Archon trying to describe what Archon is.
