“Folk-RNN” – a computerized/ machine learning system “trained” on folk music that composes ORIGINAL music!
Folk-RNN was developed in London, England at Queen Mary and Kingston Universities and has composed over 35,000 original tunes – all based on “learning” the ways of Irish and Scots folk music!
Loquantur was granted the use of some of this composition – some selections are attached courtesy of Queen Mary and Kingston Universities* – and Loquantur RHYTHM
Loquantur supports creativity and the arts and this convergence of creative music and Artificial Intelligence was just WAY too cool for us to resist.
We can’t conclude this without giving credit to the human genius which made RNN possible. Please meet Dr. Bob L. Sturm and Dr. Oded Ben-Tal
