Holy Grammys! Tiny Giant Jams returns with a right humdinger - an interview with Claire L. Evans of US electro-pop pioneers YACHT. They created their 2019 album Chain Tripping using machine learning, neural networks, old tracks and collaborations aplenty with AI luminaries such as Mario Klingemann, Cristobal Valenzula, Tom White and Ross Goodwin.
