Google created a file An artificial intelligence based tool able to generate music from text descriptions. his name is MusicLMthough show strength High quality music production Having surpassed previous projects of this kind, The company does not plan to release MusicLM as a commercial product.
Google itself notes that MusicLM was able to improve on previous systems in both sound quality Born to be able to Stick to the text description Shown. On the project site, some Examples of music created using this tool.
the Academic report Where the development of the project is explained, it defines it MusicLM uses a model trained with over 280,000 hours of music. In this way, you are meant to be born Coherent music from descriptions of “purposeful complexity”.
For example, some Songs were born From different descriptions:
“An epic soundtrack with orchestral instrumentation. The piece builds tension, creating a sense of urgency. Singing in unison, the a cappella choir creates a sense of strength and power”
“The main arcade game soundtrack. It’s fast and upbeat, with a catchy electric guitar. The music is repetitive and easy to remember, but with unexpected sounds, like cymbal rumbles or drum rolls.”
Not only is MusicLM capable of this, those responsible for the project explain Generate audio clips short. The tool’s capabilities go further than that, and it can too Build songs from already existing tunesNo matter how it is reproduced (by humming, whistling, singing, or by any kind of musical instrument).

This was confirmed to Techcrunch:
We acknowledge the risks of potential misappropriation of creative content associated with the use case. We strongly emphasize the need for further work in the future to address these risks associated with music generation.
It will be necessary to see if Google can overcome this challenge, and if so, if the company ultimately decides Released a commercial version of MusicLM. Doing so could definitely change an entire music generation.
Be that as it may, for now the company plans to focus on implementing other capabilities, such as the possibility Generate song lyrics Or improve the quality of sounds in songs.
