From the archive to
Waive is a smart DJ system that uses AI to create unique music samples, beats and loops from the digitised audio archives of the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision.
The aim of this project is to introduce new audiences to audio heritage through the use of AI and new computer technologies.
Waive is being developed as an AI-driven music tool that recognises musical potential in thematic archival audio collections. Such as collections with city sounds, harbour sounds or animal sounds. The user interface is designed as an accessible digital instrument (DAW) that could be used by any musician.
