Artificial Intelligence and Music

The Musicians of the 21st Century Plays On

My good friend and composer made me aware that the field of artificial intelligence was used to help finish of Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony.

AI-created or AI-assisted

As such we could perhaps differentiate somewhat cryptically to AI-assisted music and AI-created music. Perhaps still we simply could call both music, as the way to express music has been changing throughout time? Yet it could be fun to differentiate between the two.

The Musician’s Right

Now, hits are written and produced on iPhones (Steve Lacey, The Internet). New technologies have always given rise to new ways of making music. The introduction of DAWs (digital audio workstations) in the 80s let artists step out of the studio and create songs anywhere.

What is #500daysofAI?

I am challenging myself to write and think about the topic of artificial intelligence for the next 500 days with the #500daysofAI. It is a challenge I invented to keep myself thinking of this topic and share my thoughts.

This is inspired by the film 500 Days of Summer where the main character tries to figure out where a love affair went sour, and in doing so, rediscovers his true passions in life.
