To start off, some basic rules.
- So, the goal is to create a Eurovision-like song of maximum 3 minutes with the data provided and with (the help of) AI.
- You can use your own AI but you are also allowed to use existing models and algorithms to generate melodies, harmonies, lyrics and/or audio.
- Be transparent, darling. You have to provide insight into your process and the systems you used by filling out a process document provided by us. The specifications for this document will be available from mid January. In this process document you have to at least describe how your AI model(s) work(s) and what data you used.
- The more musical content created with AI, the more points you will earn (bubbles for everyone). Human interventions are allowed, but this will cost you points from the AI-panel. We’re not completely anti-human, but we know how to appreciate an AI-performer.
- Songs with melodies and lyrics that directly quote (parts of) existing (Eurovision) songs are rejected and will be your Waterloo.
- Your final song is an audio file. There is no video with glitter and glamour involved in the voting process. It’s just the audio.
- Competing teams must work in Europe or Eurovision affiliated countries. Sorry for Uncle Sam.
- Sharing is caring. We ask all competitors to share their algorithms, models and codes open source.
To compete in the competition, you have to send your final song and filled out process document about the creation process before March 20th 2020. But please register first to receive the dataset we provide.
