Role: Everything including Composer, AI Researcher, Sound Design and Mixing Engineer
I won the AI Song Contest 2022 with my track อสุระเทวะชุมนุม - Enter Demons & Gods (“Asura Deva Choom Noom”). At the heart of this piece is “transcultural” music AI, where tools are developed in a way that brings cultures together at every stage of the engineering, design and artistic process

Historically, music AI has been limited to Western genres like classical, rock and pop music. These models built for one cultural context are often difficult to apply to music from Thailand and Southeast Asia. My track demonstrates how new AI tools empower me to make music inspired by my home traditions, in new ways that no longer compromise the tunings and motifs at the heart of Southeast Asian musical cultures.

The goal of my music project Yaboi Hanoi is to challenge culture from Southeast Asia across mediums like music, dance and design. For this track, I hoped that music AI could change listener’s perception about Thai music, both at home and abroad. I want to employ modern tools like AI to push forwards the frontiers of culture, not just from Thailand, but from all of Southeast Asia.

3 Ways AI Is Changing the Way Music Gets Made

Read HereThai musician and engineer Yaboi Hanoi’s song “Enter Demons & Gods,” which won the third international AI Song Contest in 2022, was unique in that it was influenced not only by Thai mythology, but also by the sounds of native Thai musical instruments, which have a nonWestern system of intonation. One of the most technically exciting aspects of Yaboi Hanoi’s entry was the reproduction of a traditional Thai woodwind instrument—the pi naiwhich was resynthesized to perform the track.
