A new Alexa Skill called ‘DeepMusic’ allows users to listen to songs generated by artificial intelligence (AI).
Music Ally first found the Skill’s official Amazon page, which explains that, while the music is generated by AI, the app still uses a “collection of audio samples and a deep recurrent neural network.” This means that DeepMusic likely splices, mixes and layers sampled audio through some sort of algorithm that creates a coherent track.
So… there’s now an Alexa Skill called DeepMusic which plays AI-generated songs.

That said, DeepMusic claims that all of its tunes are created with “no post production editing by a human.” If true, this makes the Skill that much more impressive.
Once you add DeepMusic to Alexa’s Skill list, all you need to do is say “Alexa, ask DeepMusic to play a song,” or “Alexa, tell DeepMusic to play audio,” for a song to start playing on an Alexa-enabled device.
I haven’t had the chance to test out DeepMusic on my Amazon Echo setup at home, but early impressions are positive.
