I make music with code. Sound that is alive, different every time and for every person. I believe interactivity gives listeners a deep engagement with music. I want to push music beyond the confines of the mp3, streaming service and headphones. I want new music and new ways of listening.
Yotam Mann is a musician and instrument maker working primarily in code. He creates interactive and generative compositions and tools that explore new ways that technology might mediate expression, communication and relationships.
His creative output includes an open-source software library for making interactive sound and music in the browser, Tone.js. Tone.js has enabled new modes of music-making for thousands of composers using the affordances and ubiquity of web browsers. Using Tone.js, Yotam creates generative songs and installations that listeners can explore and alter by interacting with recontextualized digital interfaces.
In the past few years, Yotam has been developing instruments and audio effects using machine learning. Yotam was part of the inaugural class at NEW INC, adjunct professor at ITP NYU Tisch, and 2016 Creative Capital Grantee in Emerging Fields.
I’m always looking for opportunities and collaborators doing something new and exciting with music. If this is you, please reach out; I’d love to talk.
