YACHT in The Computer Accent release date
YACHT in Riel Roch Decter and Sebastian Pardo’s documentary The Computer Accent (MEMORY)

The boundary-pushing pop group YACHT explores the intersection of art, technology, and human intuition in Riel Roch Decter and Sebastian Pardo’s documentary The Computer Accent.

The documentary which world premiered at CPH:DOX 2022, opens in theaters on October 21 – New York at Metrograph (With Live Performance), November 17 in San Francisco (Roxie Theater), and Los Angeles (LAEMMLE Theaters) including: Laemmle Noho, Laemmle Glendale, Laemmle Newhall, Laemmle Monica.

The Computer Accent is a documentary following the boundary-pushing pop group YACHT as they try something terrifying and new: handing over the reins of their entire creative process to artificial intelligence. Working with technologists and leading AI researchers, YACHT uses cutting-edge data analysis tools, machine learning, neural networks, sci-fi instruments, and generative composition strategies to create a new kind of human-machine album—music, lyrics, artwork, videos, and all. Putting AI to the test in the name of art, YACHT are guides through the brave new world of machine intelligence. Along the way, they’ll question their own roles in a future where software anticipates, generates, and synthesizes human work.
