AI Music, Jukedeck, Flow Machines, Amper Music, Aiva. This is just a handful of organisations/applications that are making waves in the field of music creation with artificial intelligence.
The general idea is that with the power of algorithms one can teach a computer what sounds good and feed it enough information to recreate its own pieces. Funnily enough this can be traced back to 1960 and R.Kh.Zaripov's 'Ural-1' computer.
These days things have advanced slightly and deep learning, reinforcement learning and neural networks have been applied (to name a few) to the automation of new music.
As the applications develop, these advances could well end up with us all soon becoming budding producers at the click of a button.
Music to your ears? It surely can't be any worse than that which we've endured before... Happy Friday everyone!
In the same way that Instagram has democratised the process of taking and editing photos, we’ll see a similar progression towards making more people musical creators – using assistive AI to help people make good music
