Perspectives from the artists collaborating on our early music experiments

Today we shared a sneak peek at our first set of AI-related music experiments - Dream Track for Shorts and Music AI tools – built in collaboration with Google DeepMind. Read more here.

Below are some thoughts and perspectives direct from the artists collaborating with us on our early Dream Track experiment. We also gave producer/songwriter, Louis Bell, who’s part of our AI Music Incubator a sneak peek at our music AI tools that are in development.

We are thrilled to have all of these creatives join us as we kick off this next phase of genAI testing and learning as we build for the future.
