In a groundbreaking partnership with YouTube, Google DeepMind unveiled Lyria, their most sophisticated AI music generation model yet, alongside two experimental projects set to revolutionise music creation and collaboration.
Music, with its intricate layers of melody, rhythm, and vocals, has long posed a challenge for AI systems. But today marks a turning point. Lyria, developed by Google DeepMind, represents a leap in AI music generation. This model excels in producing high-quality music, handling instrumentals and vocals, and offers nuanced control over style and performance, aiming to bridge the gap between AI and musical continuity.
In a bid to foster connections between artists and audiences, YouTube Shorts hosts Dream Track, an experiment powered by Lyria. Selected creators will collaborate with renowned artists like Charlie Puth, Demi Lovato, and Sia, among others, to produce unique soundtracks using AI-generated voices and musical styles. Dream Track users can seamlessly generate 30-second soundtracks by selecting an artist and a topic, receiving an AI-generated voice and musical accompaniment tailored to the chosen style.
