Ritwik Banerji
Dr. Maxine diagnoses, (treats, again attempts to diagnose...)
Ritwik Banerji is a graduate student in ethnomusicology at UC Berkeley. His work explores the ethical and aesthetic values of “free” improvisers. This project centers around the development of a software-based interactive musical agent known as “Maxine.” Through her interactions with free improvisers, conversations emerge dealing with the real-time socio-aesthetic nature of improvised music.
