How 'creative AI' can change the future of music for everyone

#artificialintelligence

Do you think you can tell a piece of music composed by artificial intelligence (AI) from one created by a human composer? Before you read any further, let's find out. The following audio consists of two fragments, one written by AI, the other by a human. Last year, Facebook's VP of Design thought the TNW Conference main stage was the best she'd ever been on. If you didn't get it right the first time, no worries--we'll have a couple more mini-quizzes like this below.

The AI that wrote the fragment above has been programmed by Jukedeck, a UK-based startup working on machine-made music that won the competition at TechCrunch Disrupt London in 2015.

Patrick Stobbs recently sat in a conference room here playing songs from his smartphone, attempting to show how his start-up, Jukedeck, is at the cutting edge of music. The tune sounded like the soundtrack to a 1980s video game. "This is where we were two years ago," he said, looking slightly embarrassed. "And this is where we are now," he continued. He then played a gentle piano piece.

Ed Newton-Rex, who composes for choirs, says JS Bach demonstrated how the greatest creative artists draw on a wide range of qualities. "It wasn't just his knowledge of music, although that was a big part of it," he says. "It was also his fervent religious belief and very high sense of academic rigour." Until machines can encompass these, they are not likely to compose anything rivalling the Goldberg Variations. Nevertheless, as the founder of AI music composer Jukedeck, Newton-Rex thinks computers are capable of creativity.
