This is a very personal work based on my previous machine learning performances called „Markov Chain“. Additional to the used markov chains, a statistics model to simulate decisions in computers based on a network of random decisions, I added a more powerful neuronal network, a simulation of neurons working in our brains in large numbers and there connections and trained that network with a work by Distler called Totentanz. The whole information was feed in the system, not only audio date, also images, notation, historical facts. This two very different approaches now generate in realtime a new version of Totentanz every time started. The controlling and rating of the results is done by recorded medical data during the traditional catholic funeral of my grandfather earlier 2016. So the information my body spreader during this funeral is controlling an unlimited amount of versions of this Totentanz as it differs in every performance very strongly, but never removes the spirit and darkness linked to Distlers original work.
