Artificial Intelligence has arrived and is being used in ways that used to be reserved for science fiction movies. From fears of a real-life HAL9000 expelling us from our metaphorical spaceship to AI as a panacea to free us from the tedium of task-based repetition, we hear proclamations about the future of intelligent machines vacillate from utopian paradise to dystopian nightmare. This seminar examines the present state of AI in music with an eye to where it is headed and its implications for music makers.

He first became interested in music technology when he discovered that he could hear his arrangements through MIDI without having to yell over the din of disinterested drummers. Fletcher began his composition career as a composer and sound designer for video games in the Sega Genesis/SNES era before moving into film and television. He has worked on hundreds of projects in film, television, games, records, advertising, and theme parks. Fletcher teaches music production and film scoring at UCLA Extension and Santa Monica College.
