SEOUL, Feb. 28 (Korea Bizwire) – On February 27 at performing arts venue Blue Square in Seoul, a launch event by A.I.M., a company calling itself “the world’s first music label uniting artificial intelligence and human artistic sensibility”, showcased AI-based music composition tools that can produce a song in less than a minute.
Dancer Poppin’ Hyun-joon, who sampled the song production technology and put on a dance performance to music that he co-created with the machine, expressed surprise at the 30 seconds it took for his song to be produced.
“I always thought, ‘If I could dance to music that I created I would really be able to put on an amazing show’, but this technology turned that thought into reality for me in an instant,” Hyun-joon said.
A collaboration between South Korean music studio Enter Arts and U.K. tech startup Jukedeck, A.I.M.’s working model is to release music that has been produced by its in-house AI technology and modified by musicians who wish to redesign the music to suit their own artistic sensibilities with vocals included.
Through this process, A.I.M. produced three AI-human collaborative songs that were among the tracks listed in the mini-album “Music is for All” released at the launch event.
One of the music producers who worked on Music is for All likened the utilization of the AI’s instrumental generation capabilities to shopping in a major department store, due to the wide diversity of selections offered.
“Because I have the option of choosing BPM, genre, mood and highlight moments, the experience feels comparable to putting together an outfit according to my personal tastes,” the producer said.
In his presentation, Jukedeck co-founder Patrick Stobbs said the company’s technology is not limited to only amateur musicians, but anyone who wishes to create their own music.
