LyricStudio, created by California startup WaveAI, is changing the way artists create music. WaveAI does not want to replace artists. Instead, their songwriting software helps artists find inspiration and break out of writer’s block. “It’s like having a writing partner who has great ideas that you can or can’t use, but you can’t hurt their feelings,” shares Berlin singer / songwriter FLOSS.
LyricStudio was recently featured at NVIDIA’s AI Art Gallery, showcasing the work of eight artists who use LyricStudio in their songwriting process. In their testimonies, the artists share how their art has been enriched thanks to artificial intelligence. “I wanted to write a song about the emancipation of a woman after a breakup… and LyricStudio was particularly useful for me to create lyrics… from a woman’s point of view,” shares American artist / producer Bob’s Poznanovich from his song, More of Me.
An artist using LyricStudio begins by selecting a few subjects or a genre. LyricStudio then does its magic and presents original lyric lines based on the artist’s choices, inviting them to choose from or be inspired by the generations of AI. Artists can generate new suggestions at any time, making it easy to overcome writer’s block and energize the creative process. If at any time the artist chooses to enter their own lyrical material, LyricStudio adapts to their unique writing style and provides suitable lyric suggestions. With its endless ideas and flexibility, LyricStudio is the perfect writing partner.
This AI-powered lyric writing software assistant was also integrated into the DIANA songwriting competition, which was held earlier this year in Cologne, Germany. The competition aims to foster collaboration between artists and artificially intelligent systems. The finalist songs included Burn, composed by three female artists, Mona M, Mina Richman and Veggie Oxblood, raising awareness of the historic injustice of witch trials mixed with today’s call for accountability.
“Musical AI is here to stay. It is essential to share this powerful technology in a way that enriches the creative process and uplifts artists, ”says Dr Maya Ackerman, CEO of WaveAI. “Done well, creative systems allow us to express ourselves on a deeper level, making us more creative even as we move away from AI.”
