Latest Endel News

The generative sounds created by Endel may be heard in Sony’s new headphones

May 21, 2022

Posted On: This week, Brian reported on Sony’s new LinkBuds headphones and their relationship with Endel , “what if Brian Eno became a piece of computer software.” Using cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) technology, the firm creates soothing soundscapes and soothing music to aid your brain in its most important functions, such as concentration, sleep, and relaxation. To discover more about Endel’s technology and its partnership with Sony, I met with one of the company’s founders. “Endel is first and foremost a technology that was built to help you focus, relax and sleep. And the way this technology works, it procedurally generates a soundscape in real time on the spot, on the device. It is personalized to you based on a number of inputs that we collect about you; things like the time of day, your heart rate, the weather, your movement and your circadian rhythms, like how much sleep you got last night,” explains Oleg Stavitsky, CEO and co-founder at Endel. “This technology listens to all of this data, plugs into the algorithm, which creates the soundscape in real time, which allows us to react in real time to the changes in you. Using this technology, we are building an ecosystem of products, so that our soundscapes can follow you everywhere during the day across all these channels and platforms. We are pretty much everywhere at this point; iOS, Android, Apple Watch, Mac or Apple TV, Alexa… you name it.” When researching the product, I came across a few obvious gaps in the distribution network: No way to broadcast it to my Sonos speakers (the solution is to install Alexa on Sonos), and the Endel app doesn’t allow casting, so you can’t stream to Google Homes either. In contrast, running the app over earbuds allows for a more personal experience. Listening to these tunes is like listening to an Eno-esque ambient soundtrack to your day. As I sat at my work, the music helped me concentrate, as did my efforts to filter out and drown out outside noise. To use the language of the professional music business, the soundscapes are stem-based, which simply means that they are made up of short clips of sound. The computer selects the appropriate stems from the app’s vast collection of samples and stems before putting the music together in the desired order. The programme does extra changes on top of the fundamental sequencing. “We have a few AI systems on top of that sequencer; AI systems that generate melodies basically. There are millions and millions and millions of variations,” says Stavitsky. “Some of the soundscapes on the app are done in collaboration with some of the biggest artists on the planet. We have Grimes and Miguel and James Blake and Plastic Man and others that we’ve worked with, so they are good. The way they work with us is they prepare a stem pack, a sound pack. They never submit a musical composition. They just are the building blocks that the algorithm then uses to assemble tracks on the fly.” The firm claims it is contacted by other companies all the time and has to weigh the pros and downsides of partnering with them. It agreed to work with Sony, resulting in this partnership. “Sony’s headphones innovation department approached us. They said we’re working on this new model that will somehow understand the context of where you are, and we want those headphones to proactively activate a certain soundscape,” says Stavitsky, “I’m frankly very, very skeptical about all these integrations, for a number of reasons. There’s always an opportunity cost. Being a small company, you’re wondering if we should do this. What got me excited about this is that the fundamental idea of Endel is that it’s an always-on soundscape that follows you everywhere during the day. Sometimes you can barely hear it, and sometimes it’s like front and center and it shields you from the rest of the world. I think this idea of headphones that proactively trigger a certain kind of soundscape depending on the context of what’s happening with you is exactly how we envision how our product is used. This is just going to be one huge play button — you press that button, and it listens to your calendar, listens to your heart rate, and it proactively shifts between all of the soundscapes. That’s what we are working toward, and these headphones make that real.”
