British vocalist and composer Rachel Lyske leads the team behind the first patented compositional AI of its kind to create music to a dynamic brief. Built by composers for composers, award-winning DAACI is the next step in the evolution of music creation. Rachel’s comprehensive AI system can compose, arrange, orchestrate and produce authentic, high-quality and original music with emotional and narrative awareness, all under the direction of composers and artists themselves. As CEO, Rachel has brought together a collaborative orchestra of minds and technologies to develop intelligence, systems and tools that support composers and enrich digital experiences.

Rachel specialized in Composition for Screen at the Royal Academy of Music in London. Alongside her role as CEO of DAACI, she is an accomplished vocal coach at the prestigious BRIT school in London and a seasoned session singer working with chart-topping BRIT Award and Mercury Prize winning artists such as Alt J, SAULT, Wolf Alice, Elbow, Nitin Sawhney, Patrick Watson and the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Over the last 17 years, Rachel has risen through the music industry to record in the world’s top studios, including Abbey Road Studios, and perform on its brightest stages, such as The Royal Albert Hall. And through it all, Rachel has come to passionately believe that empowering human creativity and expression should be at the forefront of all AI.
