- MusicLM is an AI app that generates songs based on text queries.
- The app creates two songs from one request.
- Anyone can sign up to try out the experimental AI tool now.
From creating images to optimizing search engines, AI is almost everywhere you turn these days. Now music seems to be the next frontier as a new experimental AI app promises to turn your thoughts into music.
In a blog post, Kristen Yem, product manager at Labs, and Hema Manickavasagam, product manager at Google Research, announced the launch of subscriptions for MusicLM. Described as an experimental tool, the app can turn text prompts into music. For example, typing the query “Soulful jazz for a dinner party” will generate this.
The concept is not much different from how Google or Microsoft chatbots work. You type something into the field, and the AI generates the results.
According to the blog, MusicLM takes text requests and offers two versions of a song. Users can listen to both versions and award a trophy for the one that sounds best. This AI model is said to help improve its music generation capabilities. You can listen to a few examples of what this tool has created below.
As with other AI applications, there are concerns that using such a tool could be used to harm artists. However, Google says it is trying to make the device “responsible innovation” by working with musicians and hosting workshops to “see how this technology can enhance the creative process.”
Starting in early January, anyone can try it out in the AI Test Kitchen on the web, Android, or iOS. But as mentioned earlier you will have to register and join the waiting list.
