Artificial Intelligence makes music

Most pop music is pretty much produced using computers. Is ‘Algorithm Idol’ poised to take its place in the pop music mill? Pop music automation is a field of study among musicians and computer scientists with a goal of producing successful pop music algorithmically. It is often based on the premise that pop music is especially formulaic, unchanging, and easy to compose.The idea of automating pop music composition is related to many ideas in algorithmic music, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and computational creativity.

Now we have entered to the point that a Popular YouTube Artist Uses AI To Record New Album. Taryn Southern’s new single “Break Free” was composed by artificial intelligence. Actually the whole album I AM AI is claimed to be the first LP to be entirely composed and produced with AISouthern used an open source AI platform called Amper Music to create the stems of “Break Free.” Actually AI is used also to make the following official music video for the “Break Free”. 

Break Free – Taryn Southern (Official Music Video)

The music track and video art were created using artificial intelligence, lyrics and vocal melodies written by by Taryn. Musician Taryn Southern on composing her new album entirely with AI article tells how artificial intelligence simplifies music production for solo artists and how it was used in the production. Southern used an open source AI platform called Amper Music to create the stems of “Break Free.” For each track, she plugs in genre, the instruments she wants to use, and beats per minute. In return, Amper churns out disjointed verses that can be rearranged into a song, and layered beneath Southern’s vocals. Toryn claims that you don’t need any knowledge of instrumentation to make a great song — you just need to have a good ear.

    Daddy’s Car: a song composed by Artificial Intelligence – in the style of the Beatles
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSHZ_b05W7o

    Scientists at SONY CSL Research Lab have created the first-ever entire songs composed by Artificial Intelligence: “Daddy’s Car” and “Mister Shadow”. The researchers have developed FlowMachines, a system that learns music styles from a huge database of songs. Exploiting unique combinations of style transfer, optimization and interaction techniques, FlowMachines composes novel songs in many styles. “Daddy’s Car” is composed in the style of The Beatles. French composer Benoît Carré arranged and produced the songs, and wrote the lyrics. The two songs are excerpts of albums composed by Artificial Intelligence to be released in 2017. The research behind Daddy’s Car is financed by the ERC grant “Flow Machines”, Flow Machines is a project leaded by François Pachet and hosted by the Parisian University Pierre and Marie Curie.

    Luovuus ei ole tekoälyn vahvin puoli, mutta onnistuisiko siltä silti uuden Beatles-hitin teko?

    Tutorial: Composing with an AI Music Producer (Amper)
    http://www.joshuacasper.com/blog-post/ai-music-producer/

    Amper is an artificial intelligence composer, performer, and producer that empowers you to instantly create and customize original music for your content.

    Amper Music is an AI music producer that is currently free to use. In this video I show you how to use it!
    Amper Music uses intelligent programming to produce original music within a given set of parameters dictated by the user. Each track is unique, though not always great! I played around within the beta program for a while yesterday and was able to get a few good sounding tracks, however, more than that were unusable, at least in my opinion. I do, however, appreciate what is happening when using the program. It is all automated. It happens quickly. Truly incredible.

    The best thing about it is that the results are unique and you can use them! I make short videos for one of my projects and I am constantly looking for original music to put in the background. It has to be royalty free. I want it to be unique – not from the youtube music library that everyone has access to – and composing an original piece can take too long for how often I need it. This is a great tool for such projects.

    We’re going to build a music generating neural network trained on jazz songs in Keras. I’ll go over the history of algorithmic generation, then we’ll walk step by step through the process of how LSTM networks help us generate music.

    Zack wanted to take a different approach: he wanted his AI to learn his style of playing, and then recreate it in real-time. Well-practiced musicians can do this on the fly, it’s the whole idea behind improvisational jamming. But, how does one teach a computer to do it?

    Raspberry Pi AI Plays Piano

    [Zack] watched a video of [Dan Tepfer] using a computer with a MIDI keyboard to do some automatic fills when playing. He decided he wanted to do better and set out to create an AI that would learn–in real time–how to insert style-appropriate tunes in the gap between the human performance.

    If you want the code, you can find it on GitHub. However, the really interesting part is the log of his experiences, successes, and failures.

    Another example of a teaching (~30s) and then alternating jamming with piano. The AI becomes better over time.

    Diehard Fans Turn Virtual Teen Singer into Japanese Mega-Star
    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-10-29/diehard-fans-turn-virtual-teen-singer-into-japanese-mega-star

    She wears extremely short skirts, sports blue pigtails to her knees and has the boundless energy of a playful puppy. During her 10-year career, she’s released more than 100,000 songs in a variety of languages and opened shows for Lady Gaga.

    And yet Hatsune Miku, who boasts 2.5 million Facebook followers, doesn’t actually exist — at least not in the typical way we think of a flesh-and-blood diva.

    Miku is a computer-simulated pop star created more than a decade ago by Hiroyuki Ito, CEO of Crypton Future Media in Sapporo, Japan. She started life as a piece of voice-synthesis software but since has evolved to become a singing sensation in her own right — thanks to the creativity of her legions of fans.
