In September 2019, startup studio Betaworks announced plans for an initiative called Audiocamp, promising to “invest in and mentor start-ups building on top of the latest advancements in NLP, or inventing new mobile, voice-enabled experiences and utilities, or engaging audiences in new ways of finding and supporting their next favorite audio programming, or developing new social listening experiences for all types of audio”.
Now Betaworks has named the first six companies who’ll be taking part. One of them is called Never Before Heard Sounds, A New York-based startup whose currently bare-bones website describes it as “an artist-centric AI music production house. We make newly-possible audio effects and instruments” – complete with a button to press for a range of boings, whooshes and squeaks.
