Published on 06/20/2017, 4:31 PM

Hexachords ignites the use of artificial intelligence in musical composition. For the first time, it produced a music composed by an artificial intelligence, used for the documentary "Tunnels de guerre : la Grande évasion", directed by Anna Kwak and broadcast on March 10th on the French channel RMC Découverte.

For the first time in TV history, a music composed with the help of an artificial intelligence was used in a professional programme which is internationally broadcast.
This artificial intelligence, called Orb, was conceived and developed by the French start-up Hexachords. It is the result of five years working on an analysis and profound understanding of music and musical composition.
Hexachords music was chosen by the editing team of the documentary without knowing it has been composed by an artificial intelligence.
This is, therefore, a unique proof of concept about the capacities of the AI Orb, which is able to compose tracks with the level of quality required for TV programmes broadcast internationally.
