At Jukedeck, they think Creative AI is at its most powerful when it’s used as a tool to complement human creativity. That’s why the Jukedeck team are thrilled to be releasing three songs that were co-written by Jukedeck's AI and a group of great musicians in Korea.
Back in 2017, Chanjae Park, the founder of Korean entertainment company Enterarts, got in touch to suggest a collaboration. His take on how and why AI should be used in music-making aligned totally with our vision at Jukedeck. As he explains, "It used to be the case that music was for everyone — everyone sang or played in their villages. But then technology and professionalism came along, and suddenly music could only be played by certain people. We want music to be for all again — to ensure that everyone can make music."
The Jukedeck team think AI should be used to fuel creativity, and Chanjae agreed. What’s more, the team realised that, by collaborating, they could showcase music co-written by musicians and AI, showing that AI can be part of the creative process.
So they started working with Chanjae's team of songwriters and producers: the Jukedeck system produced the raw material (original tunes and chord sequences composed by AI, in MIDI and audio format), and the Koreans fashioned that raw material into K-pop songs, which have been sung by four great Korean singers and groups.
The songs were debuted live at Blue Square Concert Hall in Seoul , with recordings being released digitally around the world. The team at Jukedeck are really excited to see how people respond to them, ande hope this is an early step towards getting more people into music-making using AI as a tool to do so.
