AIVA, the Artificial Intelligence composing emotional soundtracks for movies, video games, trailers has teamed up with the independent studio Epic Stars to create the world’s first video game with a main theme composed by an Artificial Intelligence.
For their newest release, Epic Stars needed a powerful, memorable theme that would instantly immerse players and would hint at the epic flavor of the game. Both companies agreed on a series of themes that would inspire AIVA to create the emotional piece responsible for introducing the story of the game.
Powered by algorithms of Deep Learning, AIVA trained its understanding of music on a database of scores similar to the influences picked by both teams. As a result of this training, the AI created its own mathematical representation of music rules and influences. Finally, AIVA was able to write the main theme of Pixelfield and called it Battle Royale.
The piece was recorded with a professional orchestra and the musicians were able to bring the music to life.
With the recent closing of a round of financing for AIVA, the AI will continue to improve and create themes for large projects.
