Bringing AI Music To The Metaverse As Lockwood Publishing Partners With DAACI

Avakin Life players will be able to create their own text-prompted musical hits which can be used or sold in-game

Metaverse games developer and publisher Lockwood Publishing has announced its intention to bring AI music creation to Avakin Life. This addition will be granted to players through a partnership with London-based AI music startup DAACI.

DAACI (Definable Aleatoric Artificial Composition Intelligence) is a fully formed and patented AI system that is able to compose, arrange and orchestrate high-quality adaptive and original music, all in real-time based on a user’s narrative brief. With over 30 years of patented research behind it, the DAACI AI does not rely on pre-recorded tracks or edited audio samples as seen with other AI music solutions. Instead, DAACI can write musical elements directly through the encoding of musical ideas.

Lockwood’s Avakin Life players will gain the ability to use simple text prompts to generate original, royalty-free music for their avatars and spaces which they can use in the game and even sell or trade their creations.

The power of music

Publishing CEO at Lockwood, Halli Bjornsson commented on this latest addition saying, “We’ve been quietly at the forefront of exploring ways for users to express their identity and customise their experiences for more than a decade. The next stage of development, which is being built upon the principles of what web3 enablement powers – namely user-generated content, democratisation of development, and digital ownership – demands that music be a core component,”

Bjornsson went on to say, “We hope to explore and implement a way for players with any level of music creation skill – from the absolute beginner to the professional composer – to be able to generate unique, customisable, ownable, and even adaptive music through a simple interface. DAACI, with its unrivalled understanding of AI music composition, is the ideal partner for this journey”.

Further information regarding the progress of this new partnership is expected to be released in 2023
