The Orb and Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour and Sony have debuted a new AI Music project

Artificial intelligence is being embraced by many people within the music industry, including by both David Gilmour of Pink Floyd and members of The Orb.

There’s a re-release of Metallica Spheres, an Orb album from 2010. Called Metallic Spheres in Colour, it features Gilmour’s voice and guitar in what Sony calls “a visionary re-interpretation” of the original version.

Sony calls this a “new use of artificial intelligence led by major recording artists.” Fans can now remix the music from the new album (including the artwork) using AI-powered tools. There’s a lot of machine learning at work here. They claim this is “the first generative AI platform that empowers creators and protects their work using Authenticated AI.”
