MUSICO

MUSICA COMBINATORIA

AI GENERATIVE MUSIC,

WE AIM AT REVOLUTIONIZING THE MUSIC EXPERIENCE

MUSICO offers professional Automatic Music Services for companies who believe to be not properly and promptly served by standard music production practices.

–  among others,

Traditional Media and the Interactive Media sectors (such as Game Design and pro / consumer Digital Movie Production),
the Sport Industry,  the Marketing and Communication sector,  the Music Software Industry.

ADVANTAGES

MUSICO     is

ADAPTIVE – guided by and reacting in realtime to unlimited input strategies
AUTOMATIC and TIME-UNLIMITED – fully algorithmically generative, endless streams of music
RIGHTS-FREE – non-referable to existing music

The 3 advantages offer creative strategies to generate new music paradigms and genres and even assist future music practices with real time and offline AI methodologies to drastically challenge the intelligence of the overall music technology

TECHNOLOGY

We develop software that generates music in real-time.

This allows our music generators to respond instantaneously: as data comes in, different compositional decisions are taken and the music changes. Data could come from the user, in the form of conscious decisions (commands) or biometric data (like movement and heartbeat). It could also come from the environment, be it a physical environment, through sensors measuring quantities like temperature and light intensity, or a virtual environment, through data streams coming from other applications.

 

Artificial Intelligence is the main ingredient of our technology.

We combine methods and techniques from classical AI, where musical knowledge is made explicit and formalized in logical rules, with methods and techniques from cutting edge AI, where deep learning techniques are applied to carefully curated sets of musical examples to obtain neural networks that can generate new musical patterns in the vein of the examples.

MEDIA

MUSICO presented at “Celebrating IMAGINARY_In touch with Mathematics” – Volkswagen Forum, Berlin, 4 May 2017 – its AI Generative music engines, performing 2 live sets: the first, fully autonomously generative; the second, a live interaction between human performers and a realtime AI-based music generator.

Our current contribution to the formalisation of music genres, their logical implementation in automatic tasks and the design of assistive strategies to reinforce human capacity to create unlimited new music forms, well represents MUSICO’s commitment to a wide methodological and operational AI-awareness, at the early stage of a flourishing season.

 

 


MUSICO’s generative music engine for SPORT (www.musicfit.eu)

MUSICFIT  is a coming-out-soon APP-Prototype to demonstrate the potential of our generative music technology in Sport.

Some key points and related Media

– Working out to music positively influences your mood and emotions, reduces exhaustion and raises the levels of endurance, power and strength. Musicfit generate music in perfect SYNCH with your pace.

– MusicFit generates music on the spot. The music you hear is composed and performed by the APP. running on your phone while you are working out.

– MusicFit guides you through your workout schedule by giving musical directions depending on your actual performance

The video excerpts are extracted from a Musicfit live-set session.

In the Musicfit App for mobile devices – a Drum&Bass Test App will be released in early early May 2017 – the BPM and related formal changes in the music structure are controlled in realtime by pace detection.

PHILOSOPHY

Pro-music production

Music production today is getting very limited in style and expression, and the same we can widely say for public music taste and preferences.

A global music market that tends to play the same recognizable music everywhere, and it’s compressing and saturating popular music features at high speed…

 

The crisis of music, a distribution crisis, a linguistic crisis

In the age of Bluetooth and mp3, with the high-fidelity industry collapse – and no real improvement in architectural acoustics and sound space diffusion – it’s with great difficulty that we can justify investments in music research and new music scouting. Digital music has been able to simplify the distribution of music: but both Downloading and the Access models find a fierce bottleneck in licensing costs; on the other hand the music industry claims no real resources for (new)music and musicians, once pirating and hacking attitudes dethrone music industries from the role of margins collector for it’s highly structured (and yearly unfair) business model. This shapes a music world where generating new genres and exploring new horizons is getting more and more difficult and less and less remunerative.
We propose a proprietary Generative Music technology as an advanced and significant improvement of music languages and a real game-changing perspective for music distribution and usage.
Our use of machine intelligence and machine learning implies that our Generative Music is rights-free, and this is not all. MUSICO will be a potential Assistive Composer for all kind of musicians in order to support their artistic skills and free horizons.

We care for music vitality

With MUSICO we lay the first stone of a real music innovation
