MellisAI - An AI Generated Music Composer Using RNN-LSTMs

N. Hari Kumar, P. S Ashwin, and Haritha Ananthakrishnan

Abstract—The art of composing music can be automated with deep learning along with the knowledge of a few implicit heuristics. In this proposed paper, we aim at building a model that composes Carnatic oriented contemporary tune, that is based on the features of given training song. It implements the task of automated musical composition using a pipeline where various key features of the resultant tune are constructed separately step by step and finally combined into a complete piece. LSTM models were used for creating four different modules namely, the Tune module, the Motif module, the Endnote module, and the Gamaka module. Four models were built namely - Motif, Tune, End Note, and Gamaka whose training accuracy was 86%, 98%, 60%, and 72% respectively. Our work focuses primarily on generating a user friendly Carnatic music composer that accepts the initial user phrase to compose a simultaneous sequence of notes and motifs for the required duration.
