• Call for AI Song Contest 2022 Community Volunteers

    From Hendrik Vincent Koops@21:1/5 to All on Wed Feb 2 17:36:37 2022
    Dear AI Song Contest friends,

    Please forward to whoever might be interested.

    We hope you are all well. This years’ AI Song Contest was a great
    success: with guest judges such as the artist Imogen Heap and professors
    from Berklee College of Music and CalArts, we grew from a small first
    edition all the way to 38 entries with teams and individuals from 20
    countries working at the nexus of music and A.I., whether in music
    production, data science or both. The contest was featured on the front
    page of the international edition of the New York Times.

    The AI Song Contest team is already busy with planning next year’s
    edition, and we could use some help. To be able to manage the growth of
    the AI Song Contest and create an even better edition next year, we
    need more volunteers. Helping out with organizing the next AI Song
    Contest comes with guidance from an experienced team, and will provide
    you with the opportunity to be part of one the largest AI music
    contests in the world.

    If you are interested in volunteering for one of the roles below, please
    reach out to aisongcontest@gmail.com with your contact information and
    resume. If you want to be part of the team but you don’t see your ideal
    role below, please reach out and let us know! Some of us are also at
    ISMIR, please come and say hello!
