AI and Music

Having given up the creative torment, many artists are now using artificial intelligence in the music creation process. Songwriting apps and mastering platforms are hugely popular, and AI is also changing the way people listen to music with song identification tools and personalized playlists.

Spotify’s success. Spotify is the world’s most successful music service, and much of its success is due to the early introduction of artificial intelligence. The music streaming service analyzes geographic location, playlist data, keyword preferences, and listener song preferences to provide the most personalized interaction with the app. Spotify uses algorithms to make data-driven decisions and provide relevant information.

Audio processing. This is one of the most promising applications of AI in music. The future of music is being written now and is being driven by sound processing using neural networks and machine learning. Magenta’s current NSynth project creates new sounds by analyzing the characteristics of existing sounds. And LANDR is another example of AI that promotes, distributes, and improves soundtracks for musicians.

New music compositions. Various software applications (such as Flow Machines, AIVA, and Amper) are capable of creating music using deep learning technology. For example, AIVA is capable of creating emotional soundtracks, and musicians often use it as a creative assistant to save a significant amount of time.

Music Production. Recent analyses show that AI can replace millions of workers while creating many new jobs in the music industry. Thanks to artificial intelligence technologies, the productivity level of musicians can increase many times over, as artists will be able to focus solely on the creative part. A great example of versatile AI software is Amper Music, which can not only create original music without a license but also perform it. Users can choose the duration, tempo, style, and mood according to personal preference.

The future of AI in music remains a mystery. There is a possibility that AI will become a musician rather than a musician’s assistant. But the enormous benefits of such technology cannot be denied.
