Music Creation

Spotify is developing novel technologies for AI-assisted music creation. We contribute to research in music modelling and music generation, both in the audio and symbolic domains, as well as developing tools for creators that use Spotify data (catalogue, stems, skip profiles) with the goal of helping artists create new musical material, styles or trends. In addition, we are defining new music creation/composition strategies adapted to the use of AI in collaboration with artists. Techniques developed range from sequence modeling (deep networks, belief propagation), audio concatenative synthesis, deep learning audio generation and many others.
