London based AI-generated music tech company raises £11m with plans on global expansion

LifeScore, a London based AI music technology company, has announced that it has raised a further £11m in funding as it seeks to “soundtrack your life” in its expanding list of territories.

LifeScore creates adaptive music on demand that is algorithmically tailored to the context and needs of the listener, to relax or focus or energise, or to support the emotional narrative of a performance or immersive experience.

The round was led by Octopus Ventures, with participation from Warner Music Group, IDEO, and 4 Good Ventures. Additional investment was received from existing investor Metaplanet Holdings OÜ, an early backer of the company. This brings the total funding raised by the company to £12m.

LifeScore’s “Cellular Composition” is a patented way to transform the building blocks of a composition, artists’ recorded “cells’’, into adaptive music by algorithmically selecting, combining, layering, sequencing, mixing, and playing out the final product in real time.

The company’s technology has applications across AR and other simulated environments, live streaming, gaming, automotive, sleep, fitness, health and wellness. LifeScore has already attracted attention from a plethora of large companies, having recently signed a “groundbreaking” licensing agreement with Audi.

LifeScore intends to use the £11m investment to accelerate its traction in Europe, the US, and Asia by strengthening its technical, audio, and operations teams, expanding its customer base, and further investing in its proprietary adaptive music technology.

Philip Sheppard, co-founder and CEO of LifeScore, commented: “Music isn’t just a luxury, it’s an essential part of life. Whether for sleep, mental wellbeing, exercise or a much needed adrenalin rush, music is there to soundtrack our lives.

“We are thrilled to have found such supportive partners in this investment round, and believe that this will enable us to bring an entirely new music platform to fruition whilst creating many opportunities for musicians.”

Akriti Dokania, investor at Octopus Ventures, added: “LifeScore has made truly pioneering advances with its music technology. Music is central to our way of living and mood and by creating adaptive music on demand, the technology is algorithmically tailored to the context and needs of the listener.”
