Ai-generated double jigs in the style of O’Neill’s "1001"
I just wish to share with you a short film I have produced about "The Ai Music Generation Challenge 2020", which motivated Ai-music researchers to develop systems that can create plausible tunes in this particular style. Submissions generated by seven different Ai systems were evaluated by four experts in Irish traditional music, including Paudie O’Connor and Kevin Glackin. This film takes a close look at the challenge and the two winning jigs.
The Ai Music Generation Challenge 2021 is all about Scandinavian polskas (https://github.com/boblsturm/aimusicgenerationchallenge2021), but a future challenge will return to Irish traditional music, the reel!
These challenges are part of the MUSAiC project (https://musaiclab.wordpress.com/), funded by the European Research Council under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (Grant agreement No. 864189).
