YONA – IPNHK 2019 Musicians

YONA

YONA is an Auxuman® (Auxiliary Human) that writes lyrics and melodies and performs them, in collaboration with human producer (Ash Koosha). Ash Koosha co-founded an AI concept company, Auxuman, with Isabella Winthrop, a new media artist. It aims to make AI a virtual partner that would cooperate with human musicians, and provide innovative ideas and assistance in creative tasks, and thus in turn inspire human creativity. Since last year, Ash Koosha has developed a virtual partner named YONA. The latest album Return 0 was completed by Ash Koosha and YONA. YONA learns from Ash’s music and reproduces new songs and lyrics, like a like-minded music partner.


若娜是人工智能音樂家,與監製Ash Koosha合作,作曲填詞表演,樣樣皆能。Ash Koosha與新媒體藝術家Isabella Winthrop合作創辦了人工智能概念公司Auxuman,目的是研究讓AI 成為虛擬合夥人並與人類合作,在創造性的任務中提供創新的想法與協助,藉此希望激發人類的潛力。過去一年多時間,Ash一直在開發一個名為YONA虛擬音樂人。 Ash Koosha的最新專輯《Return 0》便是由Ash與YONA一同合作完成。 YONA依照Ash的音樂做學習,並以此再產生新的歌曲與歌詞,就如同一個志同道合的音樂夥伴。
