“Hello World” is the first multi-artist music album composed with Artificial Intelligence. Its goal is to show that AI can be used to create new, compelling music, and not mere lab demos. The album is intended to become a landmark album in the history of technology and music creation.
This project started as a research project (the Flow-Machines project, conducted at Sony Computer Science Laboratories and University Paris 6, and funded by the ERC) in which scientists were looking for algorithms to capture and reproduce musical “style”. Many scientific and technical results were obtained. Some prototypes were built, with rudimentary interfaces (and lots of bugs). However, the novelty and huge potential of the approach triggered the attention of a few talented musicians who joined the team. In 2016, we launched a song in the style of the Beatles, Daddy’s car, as well as a less conventional title (Mr. Shadow) that would become the theme of this album.
Then more musicians came. At some point, artists took control, and the scientific project became a music project.
This album is the result of this story. All the songs were created by artists using the technology: composers, singers, musicians, producers, sound engineers, in many musical genres (Pop, Electronic, Ambient, Jazz). With this diversity of skills, we had a single objective: use these new technologies to create novel, interesting music, yet music that would please our ears. Most importantly, music that the artists wanted to make!
Melodic twists, harmonic surprises, timbral juxtapositions, with a strong sense of direction and with the uncompromising goal of making really good music, music that can touch and challenge the fan base of the artists.
This album was curated by Benoit Carré, head of SKYGGE and member of the Flow-Machines team. He worked with many musicians: Stromae, Kiesza, Kyrie Kristmanson, Camille Bertault, the Pirouettes, Médéric Collignon, C. Duncan, NZCA Lines, Jata and many others.
This is the story of musicians who met in the lab, and took control of the technology to compose the music they had in their souls and which was unleashed by the AI.
