I get it. On a subatomic level. I understand this. When he talks about learning to dance on a new planet.
But it needs to go further.
Apply machine learning and not only static simple algorithms?
Decrease latency between keyboard input and algorithmic output?
Apply styles? Harmonize? Randomize?’
Want one. But better.
Tepfer sees jazz as the pursuit of freedom within a framework — a premise that underlies his work with improvisational algorithms and a Yamaha Disklavier. He unpacks the project in this video.

In all ways that matter, we are alone.
We may walk with others
We may laugh with others
We may talk with others
We may cry with others
These externalities do not define us
They reflect us.
Who cares to know another soul
To express earnest interest in the inner workings of an( )other?
For some this is not reality
But it is mine
And for that it is all of yours.
At this juncture it has come to pass
That a colleague of mine has no class.
Though he rambles all day,
Even worse, I would say,
Is his perfume is "Essence of ___!"
Writing lim’ricks is more than just luck:
It takes patience and skill not to suck.
So when taking the time
For a four-letter rhyme,
One should certainly use the word “darn.”
I’ll never be
A knight in armor
With a sword in hand,
Or a kamikaze fighter;
Don’t count on me
To storm the barricades
And take a stand,
Or hold my ground;
You’ll never see
Any scars or wounds –
I don’t walk on coals,
I won’t walk on water:
I am no prince,
I am no saint,
I am not anyone’s wildest dream,
But I can stand behind
And be someone to fall back on.

When your heart has been broken in twain,
Feeling nothing but sorrow and pain,
Be a bump on a log,
Stuff it all in your blog.
Really, who wants to hear you complain?
Should the blogger keep strict to his text,
With his follower reading what's next
Unabash-ed does find
Speaking plainly his mind
Does profoundly exclaim "oversexed!"
