It has never been easier than today to become a music producer. All you need is a cheap computer and a bit of imagination. This drastic change in the music industry has logically led to an explosion in the number of songs produced throughout the world over the past decades. While the variety and efficiency of the tools available for music production increase, the key aspect for a music producer is to focus on creativity in order to keep the inspiration going. In that sense, I believe that we can create innovative tools based on A.I. to enhance artists’ creativity. The goal will never be to replace artists, but to give them extra tools that will help them to explore further than ever before. These tools need to be very easy to use, interactive and almost invisible to fit in any artist workflow. In order to achieve this task, my job is to gather and clean data on one hand, and insert the tools we create in a music production context on the other hand to ensure their compatibility with modern production methods.

The Audio Escape Room

The Audio Escape Room is an interactive installation. This is the first audio escape game ever. It was created as a student project by Amaury Delort in Université Jean Monnet of Saint-Etienne, France. Blindfolded, the player needs to move around a virtual room and interact with the right sound in the right place to find a way out of the room. This experience is an invitation to rediscover the power of hearing. Since no visuals are included at all, blind people can totally experience this game as well.
