Abstract

Artificial Intelligence is a modern suite of four movements composed for full symphonic orchestra. The concept of this piece mainly comes from the idea that robots evolve with their own thoughts, which triggers dramatic conflict between the human race and the robot race. The four movements are derived to demonstrate distinct emotional changes. Each movement has a specific theme: from the first movement of pleasure but with concern switching to the sad but hopeful second movement and into the third movementof darkness, then moving to the fourth movement of the battle scene. The music attempts to capture each mood by using different harmonic systems and composition techniques.
