Mick Sussman is an American avant-garde composer. With the push of a button, Rosenberg – a software program created by Sussman – composes a unique piece of music, making thousands of decisions based on a sequence of randomized processes.
The art project was launched in June 2016, on The Sublunar Society. It implies the release of 365 singles during a year. The resulting compositions – mesmeric, microtonal, rhythmically intricate, seemingly purposeful and surprisingly varied – demonstrate the potential of partially automated creativity. Rosenberg is freakishly prolific: it can crank out music as fast as a human can process it, 40 hours and counting.
