Vodka brand Absolut distills its own brand of artificial intelligence thanks to the technical wizardry of Swedish studio Teenage Engineering and MIT alums Dan Paluska and Jeff Lieberman. 

The collaborative effort invites visitors to create unique interpretations of music through text using Paluska and Lieberman's "Absolut Quartet" machine or Teenage Engineering's robotic, multi-channel "Absolut Choir."
