Can AI replace musicians?
Music was usually an emotional art that humans composed, but now AI has the ability to compose music that sounds just as good as a human production. Most of the AI music systems work by using deep learning networks. They are fed tons of data, from pop hits to disco classics. Then it picks up details such as chords, tempo, and length. The system learns from the data and creates its own tunes that is almost undistinguishable from human-composed music. I included an example of AI music, the instrumentation of the song Break Free by Taryn Southern was compose by AI. She used the platform, Amper where you input genre, instrumentation, key and beats per mute to generate your own unique song. Personally for me, it is strange to have a connection with a song if a person didn’t create it because there was no emotion and thought behind the tune. On the other hand, it is an amazing tool for musicians who want to supplement their music, and create unique sounds such as Taryn Southern. Will we start seeing robot concerts in the future? Will AI composition be superior to humans?
