The Magenta team is very proud to have been awarded “Best Demo” at the Neural Information Processing Systems conference in Barcelona last week.

Here is a short video of the demo in action at the Google Brain office:

The demo consists of several components:

We’re also pleased that we can provide you with all of the code we wrote to put this demo together. Instructions and code for running the full demo, which requires Ableton Live and MaxMSP, are now available in our GitHub. We have also created a JavaScript version of the demo that isn’t dependent on these expensive software packages.

If you use this interface to produce music, aid a live performance, or even in your own AI jam session, we’d love to hear about it! Please drop us a line at
