Suntory TOKUCHA MUSIC Project Page

Dentsu Craft Tokyoで制作した「TOKUCHA MUSIC」のプロジェクトページを公開しました。「TOKUCHA MUSIC」は、音楽から毎日の食事バランスを見直すきっかけを与えるものを目指したサントリー「伊右衛門 特茶」が提供するWeb上の新サービスです。その日食べたものを入力をすると、栄養バランスや料理の種類によって、テンポやメロディー、音色などが変化し、オリジナル楽曲がつくられます。Qosmoは独自開発のAI音楽生成システムを本プロジェクトに提供いたしました。
We published a new project page for “TOKUCHA MUSIC”, the project we created at Dentsu Craft Tokyo.  “TOKUCHA MUSIC” is a new web service provided by Suntory Iyemon Tokucha, one of the pioneers of green tea functional beverages with specific medicinal benefits. The goal was to give people a new perspective on the balance of their daily diet through music. We applied our AI music generation system for this project, which generates music based on user-specified daily meals. The tempo, melody, and tone of the music change depending on the nutritional balance and type of food.
