Tech firms have developed artificial intelligence (AI) that can learn how to write music. So will machines soon be composing symphonies, hit singles and bespoke soundtracks? 

TRY IT OUT

You can experiment with AI music and its close cousin generative music already. Here are some examples.

Jukedeck
As mentioned in this feature, you can visit Jukedeck’s website and get its AI to create tracks based on your inputs.

AI Duet
Launched by Google this year, this gets you to play some piano notes, then the AI responds to you with its own melody.

Scape
Brian Eno was involved in this app, where you combine shapes to start music that then generates itself as your soundtrack.

Humtap Music
A little like Vochlea in this feature, Humtap’s AI analyses your vocals to create an instrumental to accompany you.

Weav RunThis is part running app and part music app, using “adaptive” technology to modify the tempo of the song to match your pace.
