Google Introduces AI Tool MusicLM: Generate Music from Text & Audio

Google has unveiled a new AI tool that can generate music in any genre from text prompts or even transform a hummed or whistled melody into different instruments.

Google Introduces AI Tool MusicLM

MusicLM, the technology behind this feat, is a text-to-music generation system that analyzes text to decipher the scale and complexity of the composition.

whoa, this is bigger than ChatGPT to me.
google almost solved music generation, i'd say.

The model was trained on 280,000 hours of music, enabling it to generate coherent songs and capture nuances such as mood, melody, and instruments. In addition, MusicLM can create a sort of melodic narrative by taking several text descriptions and generate audio "played" by a specific instrument in a certain style.

However, the Google researchers acknowledge the ethical challenges posed by the system, such as the risk of incorporating copyrighted material from training data into generated songs. During experiments, about 1% of the music generated was found to be directly replicated from the training songs. The authors emphasize the need for more work to tackle these risks associated with music generation.

MusicLM offers exciting possibilities for music creation, but its use also brings up ethical considerations. Google's research team is working to address these challenges and ensure that MusicLM can be used in a responsible and sustainable manner.
