UK startup DAACI is the latest company exploring creative AI in a music context. The name stands for Definable Aleatoric Artificial Composition Intelligence, and the startup has already filed several patents for its technology that “composes, arranges, orchestrates and produces” original music.
Like several existing companies in the AI music space, it sees dynamic music scores and game soundtracks as two potential uses for this technology, and also like those startups, it’s keen to stress that it wants to be a compositional aid for human musicians, rather than an existential crisis for them.
“DAACI doesn’t intend to replace composers. Instead, it provides an easy-to-use tool to enhance the productivity and scalability of their work,” as the pitch goes. The company has raised seed funding, and is now looking to raise a further $5m round by September.
CEO Rachel Lyske previously led the MIR [music information retrieval] team at startup Mashtraxx, which was acquired by Triller in 2019.
