For over 15 years Peter Dragotta's most innovative music has been branded under the name pharmacopia. During the last three years between two side experiments producing a whole album on a mobile app (Pornhub Remixes 1+2) and a follow up album playing mobile apps of grooveboxes and instruments on multiple iPhones and a iPad (Mobile Music Diversions) he has been revisiting the AI (Artificial Intelligence) world of music creation that began back in 1996-97 with his monumental releases In Real Time Vol.1
and Cereal Music
. Peter's program explained very basically is a image converter that uses advanced algorithmic operations to convert color data into music.
His latest endeavor was fueled first by a relocation to New York City three years ago and becoming an active performing improvisor in the city's Downtown Music Scene. This exposure of playing with and studying other great improvisors like Daniel Carter
, Demian Richardson, Matt Lavelle
, William Parker
, Giuseppi Logan
and others lead to major innovations and capabilities to his home grown program. On his latest release Hulu Static and Salad
with his AI band he is joined for the first time with a secondary musician Andres Marino on guitar and image creation.
