Music startups are increasingly employing AI-enabled music platforms that cater towards collaborative and sharable musical experiences, democratizing the industry by allowing users to act as creators

Artificial intelligence has had a major impact on the music industry, opening up to all the process of creating musical art and infinitely expanding the capabilities for a collaborative, connected and seamless creation process. In particular, music startups and companies are developing AI-enabled platforms that invite anyone to collaborate to create music and music videos, fostering social music-making experiences that bring people together.

The rise of social commerce isn’t limited to just retail: the music industry, too, is capitalizing on the potential for collaborative art and entertainment that technologies like AR and AI wield. Here’s how two music startups are marshaling artificial intelligence to foster greater connected creativity:

Smule
Smule is a social networking app built around music and performance. It enables social music-making experiences for home-karaoke singers where users can sing along to a catalogue of tracks, and even duet, with other users.

Triller
Triller is an AI-powered music video app that auto-arranges video takes into celeb-quality music videos. The app makes video creation very user-friendly: Participants choose a song from the app’s collection of featured tracks or one from their own music libraries, record footage for the video and then customize their video using one of the app’s filters.

These are just a few manifestations of how AI is disrupting music by enabling consumers as users to become creators. For more information on this topic, see PSFK’s report Leveraging AI To Remix The Music Experience.
