Apple has acquired a London-based startup called 'AI Music', according to Bloomberg. The company was founded in 2016 and its acquisition was completed "in recent weeks".

Before its site was taken offline, here's how AI Music described itself...

AI Music is a London based AI company led by CEO, Siavash Mahdavi. AI Music is on a mission to change how music is created, experienced, and interacted with. With deep experience in AI and music, the company is leveraging proprietary technology to evolve music from a static, linear experience to one of dynamic personalisation and co-creation. AI Music is backed by world-leading AI and machine learning investor, Alpha Intelligence Capital, and previously part of the famous Abbey Road Studios Red incubator programme in conjunction with Universal Music Group.

Some use cases for the company's technology include...

● Advertising and Media
AI Music's adaptive music technology can be used to create on demand music sound beds to generate audio visual creative at a scale and speed otherwise not possible.

● Social Apps & Video
Give users the opportunity to find, edit and play with music, safely all in app. AI Music delivers a risk free experience for users to find music that powers their expression.

● Gaming, Apps & Digital
Dynamically create remixes or music that adapts to user interaction. Soundtrack in app or game activity with adaptive music that creates hugely engaging experiences.

● Fitness & Wellness
Improve performance and increase monthly user engagement with music that fosters peak performance. Our APIs give you full control with a wide selection of music choices specifically made for fitness.

In a case study, Spark Foundry used AI Music's technology to create dynamic and personalized audio ads, which complimented a listener's music genre within the ad, all in under 10 minutes.

In June 2021, AI Music launched an AI-powered audio platform with @mademusicstudio called VentureSonicAI. It allows brands to create custom music, using their own sonic branding and use AI to adapt that music to fit any content touch point.

VentureSonic AI works by using thousands of elements created by artists and producers to intelligently produce customized tracks. The first generation of the product allows any user to have control over mood, genre, instrumentation, tempo and duration without the need for specialist production or technical knowledge. Brands with an existing sonic identity can create tracks with their sonic logos (audio logos, mnemonics) woven into the music or place them at any point in the track. This allows for seamless customization for use with any kind of video or audio media asset, making it easier to contextualize music across the myriad use cases modern brands need. Marketers will have a powerful tool that gives them branded music tracks across styles and genres at the touch of the button.

At this time, it's unclear how Apple plans to use AI Music. You can download the iClarified app or follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and RSS for further updates.
