Music and Artificial Intelligence

There was a great BBC click podcast this week, covering some of the advances made in technology and music.  There was some interesting stuff around Bjork’s new music video and art exhibit, but also a section on IBM Watson research.  They did some interesting work on computer/musician collaboration with Alex Da Kid.

They also discussed learning algorithms, used to identify vocal stem samples in songs, and attribute them to the original song.  Many vocal lines are sampled hundreds, or thousands of times, and it’s not actually clear how derivatives of original work have evolved.  Some interesting stuff in there – worth a listen.
