SM is an interactive musical synthesis application and performance framework developed by composer, multi-instrumentalist, audio scientist, and DSP engineer Andrew Grathwohl. Its goal is to be seamless yet simple; hidden from plain sight, and yet so powerful it can provoke lasting, aesthetically-pleasing memories.
It implements, via a variety of deep-learning, neural network, and probability approaches, a complex and artificially-intelligent musical accompiament, which serves to multiply a musician's performance, rather than simply serving as a sideman or partner.
Inherent in SM's design is a human-like collection of intentional flaws in the logic system employed. This is what separates Grathwohl's music from most other noteworthy approaches in the musical AI space; it maintains the humanity that makes music both possible and enjoyable. Music is the highest form of communication ever implemented by humans - we cannot entrust it to mere computer programs.
