Abstract

Concerns have been raised over the increased prominence ofgenerative AI in art. Some fear that generative models could replace theviability for humans to create art and oppose developers training generative models on media without the artist's permission. Proponents of AI art point to the potential increase in accessibility. Is there an approach to address the concerns artists raise while still utilizing the potential these models bring? Current models often aim for autonomous music generation. This, however, makes the model a black box that users can't interact with. By utilizing an AI pipeline combining symbolic music generation and a proposed sample creation system trained on Creative Commons data, a musical looping application has been created to provide non-expert music users with a way to start making their own music. The first results show that it assists users in creating musical loops and shows promise for future research into human-AI interaction in art.
