Advancement in computers and technology have been incredibly positive for music creators around the globe. You can learn how to produce music on YouTube, purchase the same sample libraries as your favorite composers and create epic scores from your laptop, anywhere in the world. As a result, there are more music producers than ever. Computers helping humans create original music has become today’s standard, but there are several companies looking to turn the tables on this process.
Computer-generated songs are a fast-growing sector of the industry, looking to disrupt creation, licensing and access for musicians and non-musicians alike. Amper Music, Jukedeck, Sony’s Computer Science Laboratory and Google’s Magenta are four companies at the helm of music composition via artificial intelligence. In fact, New York based Amper Music announced a founding investment round of $4 million this week, which will be devoted to further development of AI music creation. These technology-driven music companies have huge potential for success.
