A Couple More Songs That AI Had A Hand In

Carin reminded me of this other AI created song from a few years ago. It’s no “You Can’t Take My Door”, but that’s a pretty high bar.

The main difference between the two is that the AI didn’t write the lyrics in this case, but it did determine how the music should sound based on information it was given about various musical styles.

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.

And since they mentioned it, here’s Mister Shadow, a song based on output by legendary songwriters including Irving Berlin, Duke Ellington, George Gershwin and Cole Porter.

If you say so.
