Taking to Twitter, Grimes’ manager Daouda Leonard said that the new platform had brought in over 15,000 total users. This stat was shared on Wednesday (3 May), so it’s unknown what the figure could be now.
“Since launching GrimesAI-1 incredible new emergent creative behavior has taken off,” the manager wrote.
Some users have been using the platform to create their own original music:

The release of Elf.Tech comes a little over a week after Grimes took to Twitter to share her thoughts on AI.
“I’ll split 50 [percent] royalties on any successful AI generated song that uses my voice,” she wrote on the app, while sharing a headline about the fake Drake and The Weeknd song that was created by AI.
“Feel free to use my voice without penalty. I have no label and no legal bindings,” she continued. “I think it’s cool to be fused w a machine and I like the idea of open sourcing all art and killing copyright”.
Despite the fact that Grimes is happy for anyone to use her voice “without penalty”, she has reminded users to “please be tasteful”.
