MediaRuimte is happy to invite you to the solo-exhibiton of Peter Beyls featuring a selection of early generative works.
Peter Beyls is a Belgian born artist/musician working with computer media since the Seventies.

He studied music and computer science at EMS, Stockholm, the Brussels Royal Music Conservatory and University College London.
Beyls published extensively on various aspects of digital media, including computer-assisted musical composition, real-time systems design, interface design, personal expert systems and, in general, the application of Artificial Intelligence for artistic purposes. He pioneered the use of cellular automata in the field of computer music while at the VUB AI-Lab. His work was widely exhibited and performed at conferences like Siggraph, ICMC, Imagina, ISCM, Generative Arts and ISEA.
