“Daddy’s Car” is a song created in the style of The Beatles composed by an artificial intelligence called Flow Machines. The software uses a source database of thousands of songs to study how different artists compose their music. Once the Flow Machines software generated the composition, it was arranged and produced by Benoît Carré.
At SONY CSL Research Laboratory, we have created two entire pop songs composed with Artificial Intelligence, thanks to Flow Machines. How is it possible? That’s because our Flow Machines software learns music styles from a huge database of songs. Then, exploiting unique combinations of style transfer, optimization and interaction techniques, it can compose in any style.
Carré and Flow Machines also created the song “Mr Shadow” in the style of American songwriters like Irving Berlin and Cole Porter.
