Daddy’s Car, A Song Composed by Artificial Intelligence in the Style of the Beatles


Artificial Intelligence has created a first pop song, and going by the number of YouTube likes it has got so far, it seems like people think it’s pretty cool.

Composed by an artificial intelligence called Flow Machines, the software uses a source database of thousands of songs to study how different artists compose their music.

Scientists at SONY CSL Research Laboratory have created the first-ever entire songs composed by Artificial Intelligence: “Daddy’s Car” and “Mister Shadow”.

The researchers have developed FlowMachines, a system that learns music styles from a huge database of songs. Exploiting unique combinations of style transfer, optimization and interaction techniques, FlowMachines composes novel songs in many styles.

“Daddy’s Car” is composed in the style of The Beatles. French composer Benoît Carré arranged and produced the songs, and wrote the lyrics.

The two songs are excerpts of albums composed by Artificial Intelligence to be released in 2017.
