AWWZ b2b AI Dj is a unique collaboration between dj and producer AWWZ, and a team of researchers from the UPC University - Barcelona Tech: Casimiro Pio Carrino, Dimas Avila, Ioannis Tsiamas, y Mireia de Gracia.

Taking place at the intersection of AI genre classification, performance and audience participation, a specially trained AI will translate youtube comments into song suggestions. The resulting track selections will then be chosen by the DJ in a collaborative process, inviting reflection on questions of musical taste and the ability of a dj to ‘read’ an audience, as well as pointing the way forward to the future of djing.
