  • the problem with music.

  • It's so perfect is that it's so perfect.

  • It's so perfect.

  • It's so so thank you.

  • Thank you.

  • So if I was gonna ask you if you wanted to come up here right now and have a goal in this instrument, I am pretty sure that almost all of you would say no way, because the idea of coming up here and not being any good at it is pretty terrifying.

  • But if I just showed you some kind of new games console or some kind of like crazy interactive e r experience, you'd feel pretty differently because the thing is, you're not really supposed to be good again.

  • You're supposed to enjoy it.

  • I mean, sure, you could become the world number one at Grand Theft Auto.

  • But if we saw the world number one that Grand Theft Auto play, we want some of the action because what we see is someone who has enjoyed themselves so much so often.

  • But they've just naturally become really good at something.

  • We see the enjoyment behind the being good, But musicians spend days, weeks, months, maybe even years perfecting their albums.

  • The we spend ages listening to them.

  • So we actually train ourselves to expect music to be just so so It's kind of inevitable that we end up feeling like we can't make music unless we're exceptionally talented.

  • We've had years and years of training, but music could be so much more than that.

  • When, apart from anything else, this is a hell of a lot of fun, and we're all missing out.

  • Okay, How about you stop making me and now I'm talking.

  • That's right.

  • You may have noticed, but the thing is with talking, something very different happens because as soon as anybody says something, we just habitually come up with things that we want to say back.

  • So if I wasn't on this stage right now and I was just having a conversation with you, you would be full of your ideas on this topic.

  • We should be ready to interrupt me with.

  • But for us, making music just wouldn't happen.

  • Why?

  • Well, in the case of language, we've got ah, hold a jillion different context in which we use it so inward land.

  • You know, we do have this really high end stuff like novels and poetry and great oratory.

  • And so on, But most the time when we use language we're using in completely unplanned weighs in context just aren't really foster back quality that they're fussed about connection and interaction that we chat, we text, we banter, we pillow talk and tweet and so on.

  • And because our were diet is mostly made up of this very easy to use stuff.

  • If we come across something exquisite, like a great novel or a beautiful poem, we can appreciate it.

  • But it doesn't make us feel like we should just give up words forever, because the thing is, we speak and understand language on a whole bunch of different levels.

  • So what if we could speak and understand music on a whole bunch of different levels where we kind of got the understanding down already?

  • So I reckon that nobody here has ever gone to evening school to learn how to nod your head along to the be all right.

  • And we all know a tough note as soon as we hear one.

  • It's this instinctive.

  • We know it.

  • Some recent research as she showed that two people from cultures with no shared references whatsoever could still clearly understand the emotional content behind each other's music.

  • And in fact, there's a huge amount of evidence that suggests that language itself actually originated from some kind of musical communication.

  • So what would a musical conversation looked like or sound like When you start to imagine it, it's got some pretty cool features that you just wouldn't get with words.

  • For a start, music gets better and better that more people you've got talking over each other, but with words.

  • When that happens, it's Game over.

  • Here is a happy chord.

  • Here is a sad court, and you can move continuously between happy and sad.

  • So, you know, I spend a lot of time these days thinking about what's happened recently to image creation.

  • So images are now really easy to create and super easy to share.

  • So we actually live in a can snap.

  • Wilson at World Instagram has made us all photographers, so now we actually speak photography on what these platforms have done is a basic taken, an infinite number of very technical options on Dave whittled them down in a pretty clever way to a very small number, really easy to understand one's, but crucially, are infinitely.

  • Combine herbal in creative ways, and that is what I'm trying to do to music by making the software behind this instrument.

  • So when I started making it, I actually just wanted to make some kind of crazy deejaying software that would allow me to playback and creatively mash up the tracks that I'd spent hours and days and weeks and months composing.

  • But then, bit by bit, I started to add features that would allow me to improvise.

  • And then I started to improvise more and more my live shows.

  • And as I did that more and more, I began to get this real sense of the possibility of music as an immediate response to a present situation rather than just kind of reading out some musical statement that I crafted in the past.

  • And I just fell head over heels in love with improv.

  • And so now this has evolved into an instrument that's all about improvising, music sentence by sentence.

  • So I don't really have that many options, but they're really quick to get to an easy to combine.

  • So let's say I want to make a baseline.

  • I just take a base just messing around with you like grubbing, modify, modify.

  • Let's just let's just all right, all right.

  • Hi.

  • Do you want to try?

  • Yeah.

  • The point is, it's simple and it's quick.

  • It's easy to combine, which allows me to make music moment by moment, sentence by sentence, endlessly So currently I can only really have a conversation with myself, which kind of makes me clinically insane.

  • But the dream is to build a platform that would allow us all to communicate musically like this, moment by moment, sentence by sentence in an endless conversation.

  • Because the thing is, we are all connected in so many ways that we can't even imagine yet.

  • And the only way that we discover those connections is through communication.

  • And we communicate in so many more ways and just words, and I want to make music.

  • One of them, Thank you.
