Ai Music Generation Challenge 2022

The 2021 Challenge is all wrapped up (https://github.com/boblsturm/aimusicgenerationchallenge2021) with the first place winner winning an all-expenses paid trip to Stockholm to attend this year's MUSAiC Festival: https://musaiclab.wordpress.com/musaic-festival-2022/ 

The 2022 challenge is now accepting expressions of interest in three sub-challenges:
  1. Build an artificial system that generates the most plausible reels, as judged against the 350 published in F. O’Neill “The Dance Music of Ireland: O’Neill’s 1001” (1907). Up to two prizes will be awarded, and performances of the best ones will occur at some point 2022 in both Sweden and Ireland. The panel of judges consists of four (human) experts in Irish traditional music and performance.
  2. Build an artificial judge. This judge must detect plagiarism, analyze the appropriateness of rhythm, mode, and accidentals, and grade the structure and melody of any given tune (with reference to the 350 reels published in F. O’Neill “The Dance Music of Ireland: O’Neill’s 1001” (1907)). These artificial judges will be applied to the submissions, and their output compared with the responses of the four human judges. The system with the least error in prediction will win an award. (This could also be an output of the system built for challenge 1.)
  3. Build an artificial system that generates titles for given tunes. These systems will be applied to reels selected by the judges, who will vote on which titles they believe fit best each tune. (This could also be an output of the system built for challenge 1.)
Please send us by JULY 4 2022 your intent to participate, and which challenge(s) you would like to compete in. More information here: https://github.com/boblsturm/aimusicgenerationchallenge2022

Let me know if you have any questions.

-Bob.
