Production Music Composers: The Robots Are Coming for You

Not all composers are writing songs. There are untold thousands who spend their days and nights coming up with scores for movies and TV shows. Others specialize in production music, material that might end up in a commercial, on a website or in a corporate video. It’s hugely labour-intensive stuff but can provide a nice, steady income.

But now the robots want that job.

A British AI company called Jukedeck has come up with something it calls “responsive music software” which, they say, can write production music just like one of us meatbags. Theoretically, this could provide a steady stream of royalty-free music for use online. Music Ally has this report.
