Francesco Bardozzo si è laureato con lode in intelligenza artificiale e computazionale presso la Facoltà di Informatica – Università di Salerno (IT) (UNISA). Nel 2021, ha conseguito un dottorato di ricerca (PhD summa cum laude) in intelligenza artificiale applicata alla chirurgia micro-robotica. I suoi interessi di ricerca includono machine learning, deep learning per imaging medico, composizione generativa, biologia computazionale con particolare attenzione alle oscillazioni multi-omiche. FB ha pubblicato già diversi lavori scientifici su journal e conferenze di calibro internazionale. Nel 2018 ha lavorato al suo primo album musicale (pubblicato nel 2020 con il soprannome di Oberlunar) sviluppando diversi modelli basati sull’intelligenza artificiale per la composizione generativa. Nel 2020 ha raggiunto il primato di primo compositore italiano ad utilizzare in modo estensivo tecniche di composizione generativa basata su IA. Nello stesso anno, Last.fm lo ha classificato tra i primi 12 “top experimental piano artists” al mondo. Negli anni ha collaborato con vari gruppi di ricerca internazionali, in particolare, presso l’Università di Cambridge (UK), IRCAD (FR) e l’Università di Navarra (ES). Nel settore musicale collabora con artisti affermati ed emergenti a livello nazionale. Recentemente è stato selezionato nel comitato scientifico dell’ISIA dell’Università degli Studi di Firenze come esperto nel settore musica e intelligenza artificiale.
Cosa pensano di me…
Oberlunar è un ingegnere narcolettico, cantante e compositore polimorfico, lunare e proiettato su orizzonti distopici, pregno di cultura cyber punk, fonda la sua attitudine alla sperimentazione ed alla composizione generativa basata su reti neurali accompagnando l’ascoltatore in viaggi spirituali profondi, dark blue ed extra-dimensionali.
Francesco Bardozzo (alias Francis Oberlunar) received a B.Sc and M.Sc degree cum laude in artificial and computational intelligence from the Faculty of Computer Science – University of Salerno (IT) (UNISA). In 2021, he received a PhD summa cum laude in artificial intelligence applied to micro-robotic surgery at UNISA. His research interests include machine learning, deep learning applied to medical imaging, generative composition and computational biology with particular attention to multi-omic oscillations. I have more than 10 peer-reviewed scientific publications in journals and international conferences. In 2018, he worked on his first music album (published in 2020 with the moniker of Oberlunar) developing several models based on artificial intelligence for generative composition. In 2020, FB established the primacy of the first Italian composer to extensively use AI-based generative composition techniques. In the same year, Last.fm classified Oberlunar as one of the first 12 ‘top experimental piano artists’ in the world. During the years, he worked with several international research groups in particular at the University of Cambridge (UK), at IRCAD (FR) and at the University of Navarra (ES). In the musical field, he collaborates with several emerging and well-known artists at the national level. Francis Oberlunar is on the scientific committee of the ISIA – University of Florence regarding artificial intelligence and music. ‘
What they think about me…
‘For Oberlunar, music offers him a feeling of escape from the earth, in the deep empty space, which then infuses himself into his daily life and serves to transform every moment into a truly intimate representation of the dark blue notes that come from the soul.” His creative process represents the annihilation in the darkness and the explosion of light. Oberlunar has always suffered from a very strong internal disagreement that resulted from his disjointed studies. He initially faced classical studies after which his forma mentis drastically changed as conditioned by molecular biology, mathematics and advanced algorithms. Despite being focused on his work as a Computer Engineer with a PhD on artificial and computational intelligence, there still exists a part of him that will always be drawn to music even in its most classical form. Oberlunar is an artist and musician following in the footsteps of his grandmother who was a piano teacher, and picked up the classic and jazz guitar from his grandfather and father alike; coming from a family that treasured music although as just a delightful pastime. His drive is fueled by a desire to communicate emotions through music. ”Oberlunar’s musical culture is psychedelic, progressive rock piano and electronic with an experimental state of mind and dark infusions.” Oberlunar’s contribution to each melody is introducing new and more experimental elements. His music is influenced by classical and humanistic studies but is a composition that also blends in hybrid human-machine methodologies, resulting in an eclectic, melancholic, and dreamy style that is then refined to his taste and experience in music. His creations feature a dynamicity from instrumentals to sound, ambience to the theme as he strives to test his skills in building ever more complex models for algorithmic melodies with underlying minimalism.
