I’m an AI (music) engineer, entrepreneur, and researcher.

Do you need help with AI music? Check the services I offer on The Sound of AI webpage.

Here’s what I do:

  • I build AI (music) products and startups;
  • I consult in the AI (music) space;
  • I help companies hire AI music engineers and form AI teams;
  • I lead AI teams and set the AI strategy;
  • I share my knowledge about AI (music) through my YouTube channel and public speaking;
  • I’m currently writing a book provisionally titled The AI Music Revolution for UC Press.

In 2016, I co-founded and led Melodrive as CEO. At Melodrive, we built the first AI music engine that generates video game music in realtime. The generated soundtracks evolve endlessly and adapt their emotional features, based on the narrative and visual state of the game.

The journey with Melodrive brought me to Silicon Valley, where I raised a VC round and got in love with the startup world. Coming 2020, we sold the company and I started a new journey.

I worked as senior AI engineerat Musimap. I led the MLOps team for Utopia Music.

Starting from January 2020, I launched The Sound of AI YouTube channel, where I regularly publish educational material on technical and business aspects of AI audio/music.

As a spin-off to the channel, I launched The Sound of AI Slack Community, which now features ca. 9K members featuring learners, practitioners and researchers in AI audio/music.

The Sound of AI grew into the largest online AI music ecosystem. As part of The Sound of AI, I offer consulting and recruitment services.

These are some activities I ran with The Sound Of AI:

You may be wondering about my background. Well, I have a PhD in AI Music (what a surprise!). I studied both music (composition, conducting, and piano performance) and astrophysics. I have been involved with programming and AI since I was a teen. I carried out research in music cognition and am passionate about philosophy of science and all nerdy things.

Agile methodologies, clean code, test-driven development, MLOps and the lean startup are my obsessions.  I’m a fervent believer in open source / open science.
