AIVA Technologies plans to expand the development team and accelerate the international growth of its product. The ultimate goal of AIVA is to help composers in the production of original music and not to replace them.
Pierre Barreau, CEO of AIVA, explains his vision to the readers of The Patent: “There are no composers in the world who can produce hundreds of hours of music. That’s impossible. What is possible, however, is to have a composer who creates two hours of original music and then use AIVA to extend their creation through variations or improvisations on the material the composer has created. The composer’s work will therefore be to set a vision, without losing the creative nature of the process“.
