YouTube Introduced a new feature that will provide select users the ability to make music with the artificial intelligence-generated vocals of various major artists.
We can call the experiment a Dream trek. This is a text-based feature and with help of help of this feature that allows to users can make a request for a song by describing qualities such as the song’s mood or concept, and the AI will generate the music.
As of launch, nine artists have lent their voices to Dream Track, which includes — Demi Lovato, Alec Benjamin, Charlie Puth, Charli XCX, John Legend, Sia, T-Pain, Troye Sivan, and Papoose.
With the help of Dream Track, song snippets will be up to 30 seconds long, the company said in a blog post announcing the feature, and Lyor Cohen,
“An experiment designed to help explore how the technology could be used to create deeper connections between artists and creators, and ultimately, their fans.”
“Combined, these experiments explore the potential of AI features to help artists and creators stretch their imaginations and augment their creative processes,”
Cohen and Reid wrote “And in turn, fans will be able to connect to the creatives they love in new ways, bringing them closer together through interactive tools and experiences. All of this will help us iterate and enhance the technology, informing applications for the future.”
Dream Track was one of several new AI music features YouTube and Google declared. The company also disclosed it would launch more AI music tools later this year than the company said.
“Imagine being able to more seamlessly turn one’s thoughts and ideas into music; like creating a new guitar riff just by humming it or taking a pop track you are working on and giving it a reggaeton feel,”
They said, “We’re developing prospective tools that could bring these possibilities to life and Music AI Incubator participants will be able to test them out later this year.”
In a statement, Charli XCX said, “When I was first approached by YouTube I was cautious and still am, AI is going to transform the world and the music industry in ways we do not yet fully understand.”
She also said, “This experiment will offer a small insight into the creative opportunities that could be possible and I’m interested to see what comes out of it.”
In an individual statement, Demi Lovato shared, “My career has been about pushing boundaries of and creating the most interesting music for my fans. I am open-minded and hopeful that this experiment with Google and YouTube will be a positive and enlightening experience.”
Grainge said “We have a fundamental responsibility to our artists to ensure the digital ecosystem evolves to protect them and their work against unauthorized exploitation, including by generative AI platforms,”
“At the same time, we must help artists achieve their greatest creative and commercial potential – in part by providing them access to the kind of opportunities and cutting-edge creative tools made possible by AI.”
