Music Composition with AI

AI is democratizing music creation. With tools like OpenAI MuseNet and the Google Magenta, musicians and even beginners can compose original pieces with the help of algorithms. These systems can generate melodies, harmonies and rhythms based on pre-existing or new musical styles.

Automated Mastering

O LANDR offers instant mastering using AI. It analyzes the artist's track, comparing it to thousands of other tracks, and applies corrections to optimize sound quality. This saves time and money over traditional mastering studios and makes the mastering process more affordable.

Smart Distribution

Streaming platforms such as Spotify It is Apple Music, use AI to recommend music to users. Algorithms analyze listener behavior, identifying patterns and preferences to suggest new tracks, helping independent artists reach new audiences.

For example, if a user frequently listens to alternative pop tracks such as “Love in Disguise“, the algorithm can suggest similar songs from emerging artists.

Personalized Experiences

AI enables a personalized music experience. Algorithmically generated playlists, like Spotify’s “Discoveries of the Week,” offer listeners music aligned to their tastes, based on their listening history.

Furthermore, apps like “Endless” enable real-time music collaborations using AI. Musicians can create loops and AI helps harmonize them, enabling virtual jam sessions between artists around the world.

AI-Generated Video Clips

Can AI tools create music videos based on a song's melody, lyrics, and rhythm? This may be the path where technology in music is heading. For now, the RunwayML is a tool that uses AI to create visuals based on music.
