Artificial Intelligence and Music

Artificial Intelligence and Music

Streaming services, the “fat” sound, anthropological research, and others – encounters between Artificial Intelligence and music is far more complex and historical than debates about the threat to human creativity posed using AI would lead us to believe. For example, AI can help us make previously unknown artists discoverable and listenable. AI can also help us to systematically analyze music and sort it according to its emotional content or “fatness” to generate new insights about music. After all, music is an essential part of our culture and society. It accompanies us consciously or unconsciously in our everyday lives.

In our podcast, we talk to six protagonists who are venturing into, exploring, and advancing the field of encounters between AI and music in a variety of ways. We learn what AI and music have to do with emotions, ethnology, or an international music competition, and listen to their very personal approaches and musical experiences with Artificial Intelligence.

With the podcast “Artificial Intelligence and Music” we extend the horizon of listeners with perspectives from science as well as industry-specific and practical applications of AI in music – brief, entertaining and comprehendible.
