Young Paint has been progressively learning and emulating the shadowy, unpredictable, UK bass- and rave-inspired music of Darren J. Cunningham, aka Actress. Over the course of 2018, the AI-based character has spent time programming and arranging Cunningham’s sonic palette, learning not only how to react to his work, but also to take the lead with the occasional solo. A life-size projection of Young Paint working in a virtual studio parallels Cunningham’s performance on stage, visualising their collaboration. The duo released a mini-album this October via Werk__Ltd. (a new collaborative label between The Vinyl Factory and Actress), which delivers a sneak peak of these improvisational ventures. This two-night appearance at the transmediale 2019 / CTM 2019 Collaborative Concert will be a world premiere event, marking the first time that Young Paint will perform live in collaboration with Actress on stage.

The new Actress + Young Paint (live AI/AV) performance was co-commissioned by transmediale and CTM and celebrates its world premiere in the framework of the 2019 festivals.
