I School doctoral student Jon Gillick and postdoc Matt Sims are members of the group M.O.G.I.I.7.E.D. — recently named the winner of the international AI Song Contest competition.

This was the second year of the contest, in which teams are asked to create a four-minute song using AI as some part of their songwriting process. Different teams used different approaches; while some were completely hands-off, letting the AI models generate songs completely on their own, many others used a more “collaborative” approach, using AI to generate melodic, harmonic, rhythmic, and lyric ideas that the humans then compiled into a song by hand.
