Google has created an AI that can generate pieces of music of variable length starting from a text request, or from a whistled tune.

Google researchers have created an AI that can generate pieces of music of variable length starting from a text request (prompt). Even more interesting, artificial intelligence can generate highly articulated songs starting from a melody, for example, whistled by the user.

 

Google’s project is called MusicLM and is yet another milestone in the field of generative artificial intelligence. If DALL-E is able to create images starting from the user’s instructions, while ChatGPT is able to process texts, MusicLM occupies a completely new scenario: that of musical composition .

The user can give the AI ​​rather vague instructions, or he can provide extremely descriptive and detailed props. You can ask MusicLM to start the piece with specific musical instruments, recreating an atmosphere or keeping a certain rhythm. Then you can ask to continue with a different style and so on, indicating the time interval of each part.

An example of how AI works comes to us from the following prompt:

  1. electronic music played in a video game (0:00-0.15)
  2. meditation music played near a river (0:15-0:30)
  3. fire (0:30-0:45)
  4. fireworks (0:45-0:60)

The prompt in question is not particularly detailed or sophisticated, but that was enough for MusicLM to generate this short piece.

MusicLM can also theoretically generate human voices, such as a choir, but The Verge argues that this is where artificial intelligence is currently struggling the most.
