Project Magenta is a Google Research project that uses machine learning to create new tools for artists and musicians. One of these tools is NSynth, a neural synthesizer that generates strange, new sounds like “cat flutes,” “beast guitars,” and “screaming 3D printers.” In this video, I explore how NSynth works, and talk with Andrew Huang about his process creating a song entirely out of NSynth generated sounds.
