Abstract: Humans have been entertained by music for millennia. For ages it has been treated as an art form which requires a lot of imagination, creativity and accumulation of feelings and emotions. Recent trends in the field of Artificial Intelligence have been getting traction and Researchers have been developing and generating rudimentary forms of music through the use of AI. Our goal is to generate novel music, which will be non-repetitive and enjoyable. We aim to utilize a couple of Machine Learning models for the same. Given a seed bar of music, our first Discriminatory network consisting of Support Vector Machines and Neural Nets will choose a note/chord to direct the next bar. Based on this chord or note another network, a Generative Net consisting of Generative Pretrained Transformers(GPT2) and LSTMs will generate the entire bar of music. Our two fold method is novel and our aim is to make the generation method as similar to music composition in reality as possible. This in turn results in better concordant music. Machine generated music will be copyright free and can be generated conditioned on a few parameters for a given use. The paper presents several use cases and while the utilization will be for a niche audience, if a easy to use application can be built, almost anyone will be able to use deep learning to generate concordant music based on their needs.
