Artists are no longer insulated against the prowess of artificial intelligence which is now set to compose music for more “functional” projects like T.V. commercials or short online videos. A New York-based startup, Amper, has developed this music-composing A.I., which it describes as an “emotive composer, performer and producer,” designed for sharing ideas with humans and rendering more creative music.
Prominent music composers, Drew Silverstein, Sam Estes and Michael Hobe, who conceived the idea of A.I.-based musician, said that budget constraints often force the producers to rely on stock music, writes Tech Crunch. The trio pitches Amper as a fast, affordable and royalty-free way to create music, while highlighting the system’s ability to collaborate with humans.
One of the key upsides of Amper is that it can be used by anyone with literally no knowledge of composing music, notes The Technews. One can specify the mood, length, genre, and Amper responds with an initial composition, which can be refined further.
