Dubai hits right note with AI-composed music

DUBAI, May 2, 2018

The future of music and the future of technology combined in perfect harmony at Dubai World Trade Centre yesterday (May 1) as the 2018 edition of The Internet of Things Expo (IoTX) made a musical history. 
 
‘Ode to Dubai’ – the world’s first AI-composed song dedicated to a city – was unveiled by Pierre Barreau, CEO of AIVA Technologies, and the brain behind the game-changing anthem.
 
A collaboration between the show organisers, DWTC and AIVA Technologies, a leading European Artificial Intelligence (AI) music composition startup, ‘Ode to Dubai’ was created using Artificial Intelligence Virtual Artist (AIVA), which composes original classical scores for film, advertising and gaming soundtracks. 
 
The ground-breaking song was composed based on the algorithms of 30,000 symphonic music scores from history’s greatest composers including Mozart, Beethoven and Bach.
 
Barreau said: “Two different persons hearing the same music might feel different things and that is why AI-composed music can make people feel something: because the emotions are not in the score. They are created in our brains.”
