In the end most teams used smaller models that produced specific parts of a song, like the chords or melodies, and then stitched these together by hand. Uncanny Valley used an algorithm to match up lyrics and melodies that had been produced by different AIs, for example. Another team, Dadabots x Portrait XO, did not want to repeat their chorus twice but couldn't find a way to direct the AI to change the second version. In the end the team used seven models and cobbled together different results to get the variation they wanted. It was like assembling a jigsaw puzzle, says Huang: "Some teams felt like the puzzle was unreasonably hard, but some found it exhilarating, because they had so many raw materials and colorful puzzle pieces to put together."
