Although it is clear that Rapper FN Meka is not a real person, his voice is and it was co-created by Anthony Martini, founder of Factory New, and his partner Brandon Le. Over time, Martina hopes that — with further advancements — a human voice will no longer be required and that computers will be able to take precedence.
“We’ve developed a proprietary AI technology that analyzes certain popular songs of a specified genre and generates recommendations for the various elements of song construction: lyrical content, chords, melody, tempo, sounds, etc. We then combine these elements to create the song,” Martini said, according to Music Business Worldwide.
Martini added: “As of now, a human voice performs the vocals, but we are working towards the ability to have a computer come up with and perform its own words – and even collaborate with other computers as ‘co-writers.’”
