On some occasion we have echoed how artificial intelligence begins to draw its future when it comes to autocomplete text. Tools like Talk To Transformer showed that a small text is enough to complete it through AI, and today we come with a neural network capable of creating well-structured songs, just by indicating a word.
The project is called These Lyrics Do Not Exist, and as we have just indicated, it requires a theme to elaborate a song from scratch, with its verses, pre-choruses and choruses included.
The perfect lyric generator is an AI
The creator of this artificial intelligence has as its main objective to show that neural networks can become creative, a capacity that has always been inherent in the human being. The idea is simple: one word, endless possibilities to create songs and song lyrics with it.
“Some people wrongly believe that computers cannot be creative, however as TheseLyricsDoNotExist.com shows, computers using artificial neural networks can be creative and create new ideas similar to how humans are creative.”
The web format is quite simple. In the section of ‘Live Demo’ we will see different topics to which we can adhere. Love, party, dance, happy, human, etc. It is important that the word or topic that we put is not too far fetched, since otherwise the AI will not be able to generate a letter. Once we introduce the word, the composition is created with the following structure.
- First verse
- Second verse
At the time we wrote this article, AI has been able to generate more than 25,000 compositions. We have been testing with one word more than 30 times and, indeed, the compositions vary without repeating. Simply press the ‘regenerate’ button so that the song is generated again, in case the first result does not convince us.
The lyrics are quite consistent with respect to the word we have chosen (depending on the theme, the tonic of the text will refer to it), with fairly simple verses, typical of music such as pop.
