In 2013 I founded a company to empower people to create meaningful, personal, rewarding musical experiences with technology. The idea was this: Just play your instrument in real-time, with expressive freedom, while a full orchestra part created by some of the greatest composers who have ever lived surrounds you and makes you feel like the center of the universe. Exploit the best of AI and predictive algorithms to free people to make music their way. Together with the world’s foremost expert on intelligent music accompaniment systems and a Harvard MBA student, we founded Sonation so people could experience the rewarding satisfaction of making music.
