Amazon has launched a new AI-powered compositional tool called the AWS DeepComposer.
The MIDI keyboard, which is set to retail at $99 when it goes on sale soon, can create an entire finished composition from just one inputted melody.
Users can record a melody using the keyboard and then take their pick from a number of genre models, such as rock, pop, classical and jazz. The keyboard will then complete the composition in whatever style is chosen using the melody.
Picture this... It’s 2030, and the DJ Mag Top 100 has just been topped, for the first time ever, by an artist created with artificial intelligence. The furore is palpable. The DJ community and scene at large are up in arms.
An artificial intelligence programme has been taught to create 231 producer names, and they're alarmingly believable.
Berlin-based Swede Olle Holmberg is a producer and photographer with a great affinity for one of Berlin's most renowned record shops, Hard Wax. So much so that he trained an AI to scan and analyse every artist name on the store's website, and subsequently create its own names.
Electronic luminaries Holly Herndon and Jlin have created a new track ‘Godmother’, out now on 4AD, completely via an AI program called Spawn.
Spawn was created over the course of two years by Herndon and Mat Dryhurst. Producing the track entirely via machine learning, Spawn repeatedly listened to recent DJ Mag interviewee Jlin’s work and tried to replicate it with Herndon’s voice.
A new EP has just been released by an AI startup, WaveAI, which is pioneering a new music creation app called Alysia.
DJ Mag reported last year that artificial intelligence was already being used to craft pop music, and there’s currently a great deal of speculation about the role AI will play in the future of the music industry.
Using Alysia's technology, you can input a few details into the app for it to start creating a composition of its own accord.
Mohican Sun returns to Artifical Intelligence's Integral Records with a new four-track EP next month, including smooth liquid cut 'Calgary'.
As with other label mainstay Dawn Wall, Mohican Sun is a mysterious producer(s), simply represented by an illustation of a tribal mask.
Stylistically versatile, Mohican Sun is primarly known for sublime liquid drum & bass and today's premiere is a perfect example.
Dawn Wall drop a fifth EP for Artificial Intelligence's Integral Records this month, and we've secured a sublime, little taster in the form of 'Mantis'.
Since emerging onto the scene back in 2015, the identity of Dawn Wall has been one of the most talked about mysteries in the drum & bass scene.
