Soundscapes of the Future: Transforming Music Creation Through AI

In the past two years, innovators in almost every industry have examined their business models and asked the question, “how can AI help us improve?” AI applications have been implemented to fit a myriad of verticals, from data analytics and sales to education and training. But the implications of AI assistance grow more complex, and fascinating, when the conversation is brought to the realm of the arts. What does AI have to offer creators such as musicians? Can technology truly be used in a field which relies heavily on human creativity?

On July 10, 6:00pm (In-person); 6:15pm PT (online)// May 2, 10:15 am JT (Online), the SVJP gathers to explore AI’s impact on music creation. Leading us through the discussion will be Ivan Linn, Founder & CEO of the generative AI music platform Wavv. Using his experiences as a musician and tech entrepreneur, Linn will share the ways emerging technologies are being used to compose music, bolster content creation, and empower musicians. The session will be moderated by Sheri Bryant, consultant and advisor in emerging entertainment technologies.
