Chief Executive Officer
Rachel Lyske has taken a professional journey that has diverged from the typical performing arts career. Guided by her passion for identifying and nurturing the creative abilities of others, she has forged a unique path that has led her to becoming CEO and co-founder of DAACI.
Rachel’s strength as a leader in the field of AI-based music is rooted in her background in musical composition and vocal performance. She trained as a composer at the Royal Academy of Music, London, working alongside peers and mentors in the upper echelons of musical production on screen, stage, and studio.
Her ear for novel and innovative talent made Rachel an ally in the ascendency of more than a few rising stars, as a co-producer of the exclusive and widely acclaimed industry music festival, “In The Woods”. Her contribution to developing talent continued in her role as lead vocal consultant for the main music exam body, the ABRSM, where she designed the syllabus for the current “Singing for the musical theatre” exams. She’s put her own training and theories to the test as a supporting vocalist for Mercury and Brit Award winners, both live and in recording.
Arriving at MXX in the heart of London in 2018, Rachel helped lay the groundwork for DAACI, the technology that now promises to open new doors in the field of AI musical composition. Her leadership ensures that the vision for DAACI puts emerging talent front and centre as it becomes the premiere composition tool for any brief, anywhere.
