New York, NY (Top40 Charts) In collaboration with Yamaha Corporation, HAKUHODO i-studio will exhibit an experiential installation "Duet with Yoo" equipped with the Yamaha AI Music Ensemble System at Booth 1325 of the 2018 SXSW in Austin, Texas from March 11 to 14. The display presents a new role for musical instruments in an AI system bringing the joy of playing in a music ensemble to any musician.

Yamaha has worked on different music AI activities including concerts using its proprietary AI Music Ensemble System and these innovative performances have been well received. As a next step, HAKUHODO i-Studio and Yamaha decided to realize the "Duet with Yoo" installation to allow musicians to interact directly with music AI and gain a better understanding of how AI can enhance their performances,

HAKUHODO i-studio and Yamaha developed "Duet with Yoo" to create a new musical and visual experience to expand the potential which every musician has within them.

It provides an interactive AI experience where a musician feels like they are playing with another musician. The Yamaha proprietary AI Music Ensemble System instantly analyses a musician's performance in real time, and predicts suitable tempo, timing and dynamics to create a harmonized ensemble on a Yamaha Disklavier piano. As you play, YOO beautifully accompanies your performance.

In addition, the "Duet with Yoo" installation visually expresses synchronicity between you and YOO by coordinated on-screen displays. This is made possible by HAKUHODO i-studio's technology and imagination. Along with Yamaha Music AI technology, it creates a unique next-generation music ensemble experience.

Participants can experience "Duet with YOO" through their performance of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star". This song was chosen because it is very well-known and relatively easy for beginners to play allowing almost anyone to experience music AI.

The Yoo exhibition will be on display during the SXSW trade show at booth 1325.
