Is named MusicLM and it can forever change the music industry and leave platforms like ChatGPT behind. Google is working on this artificial intelligence (AI) that turns hums and texts into real music.
According to a document that cites fortune.com and mentions a report published on the website of yahoothis tool “can transform whistled and hummed melodies according to the style described in a text caption”.
MusicLM can also generate “hi-fi music based on text descriptions as a soothing violin melody backed by a distorted guitar riff”.
Google shows some examples with the results generated by the tool. In one case, someone hums “Bella Ciao,” an Italian folk song from the late 19th century that went viral on Netflix’s Money Heist. Then, based on that, the tool generates music with various instruments and styles, including guitar solo, string quartet, and jazz with saxophone.
Google announces MusicLM: a model to generate music from text. Here are some crazy things it can do:
1. Given audio of a melody, it can generate new music inspired by that melody customized by prompts! Here’s someone humming bella ciao turned into a cappella chorus, EDM, etc. pic.twitter.com/HKDnXI1C8U

Keunwoo Choi, an AI scientist at Gaudio Lab, an audio industry company, tweeted: “Oh, this is bigger than ChatGPT for me. Google almost solved the music generation I would say”.
For his part, businessman Martin Uetz wrote: “Think of MusicLM as the ChatGPT for music. I can’t wait for this to go mainstream”.
Less eager might be musicians, who have spent decades mastering their instruments, just as illustrators and graphic artists have chafed at AI tools that create stunning images from mere text cues.
As a tool, MusicLM is far from perfect, but it suggests where things are headed. The same can be said for ChatGPT itself. As billionaire Mark Cuban recently said of the chatbot: “Imagine what GPT 10 will be like.
