In 2019 Martin was commissioned by Routledge Press to edit and write an anthology book on new music technology. About the publication:
‘AI technologies present unique possibilities for musicians to build and challenge existing modes of sonic expression and transmission. This book highlights pathways to the opportunities and rewards of the application of AI within the Creative Arts. It also raises questions about the human artist’s role and ethical issues of authorship and creative rights. In response, multiple voices from leading AI practitioners in industry and the academy in related audio and computer engineering communities present a transdisciplinary non-dogmatic consensus on the algorithmic age’s pressing ethical and technical questions aligned with the UN’s values SDGs.’
Contributors include Jacques Attali (economic advisor to President Mitterrand and seminal music theorist), Holly Herndon (artist), Scott Cohen (Warner Music Group), Rome Thomas (Apple Music), Miller Puckett (creator of MAX and PD programming languages), Dr Gil Weinberg (Georgia Tech), Dr David Cope, (University of Santa Cruz), John C Havens (Executive Director of IEEE Global Initiative on Ethics), Dr Jennifer Edmond (President of DARIAH) and Dr Aljosa Smolic (extended reality technologies).
This work presents a transformative educational methodology for approaching the creative arts and AI technologies.
