Creative collaboration: Artificial Intelligence (AI) to generate Indian Music

Pune Dec 12 (UNI) Professor Dr Vinod Vidwans of Pune-based FLAME University has evolved a software that generates computational Indian music using Artificial Intelligence (AI).
For the first time that Artificially Intelligent Creative Expert System has been developed that generates a Bandish (a musical composition) in a given Raga and renders it in traditional classical style.
Professor Vidwans, the former Chair, Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts at The FLAME University, Pune and also is a product of Mumbai’s Industrial Design Centre at the Indian Institute of Technology and has to his credit design and development of 'Bharat Veena.'
Talking to UNI here on Thursday, he said advances in computers and new media technology have opened up new avenues for music-making. Many musical minds are already exploring these advances and are looking forward to new horizons.
Dr Vidwans’s research explores the possibility of 'computer-created' Indian music or computational Indian music using Artificial Intelligence (AI).
He said his research has led to the generation of 'Bandish' on its own without any human assistance. The system is tested with a number of Ragas such as Hamsadhwani, Dhanashri, Malkaunsa, Maru Bihag, Kalavati, Desha, Bilaskhani Todi, and Bhairavi and so on. His creation was presented to the students of print journalism at FLAME University recently.
