Çağrı Erdem (he/him) is a gonzo developer, interdisciplinary artist, and researcher specializing in musical artificial intelligence (AI), sound art, improvisation studies, and human-computer interaction. With an overarching interest in machine agency and embodiment, his Master's degree focused on developing new musical interfaces to extract body movements in the form of biosignals. As a Ph.D. fellow with the RITMO centre at the University of Oslo, he expanded his research on the co-performance of humans and machines and combined theories and methods from the performing arts, computer science, and music cognition. His dissertation, "Controlling or Being Controlled? Exploring Embodiment, Agency and Artificial Intelligence in Interactive Music Performance," investigates real-time sound and music control distributed among human performers and artificial agents, of which the main scientific contribution arises from situating AI in an embodied, co-adaptive music performance context implemented as several interactive systems. Besides his artistic and academic work, Çağrı is the Department of Musicology board member at the University of Oslo and the co-founder and coordinator of A.I.D, an Istanbul-originated nomad organization dedicated to the performance arts.
