Imagine a world where you can create your own songs with just a few clicks. A world where you can choose the voice texture and voice characteristics of your favorite singers. The mood and raga of the songs, and the lyrics that resonate with you. A world where generative AI can churn out a unique and amazing song in minutes. Artificial Intelligence is here to reset your sensibility in music.

This is not a fantasy, but a reality that is becoming more and more possible with the advances in AI technology. Generative AI is a branch of artificial intelligence that can produce new content from scratch. Such as music, images, text, and even speech. It can learn from large amounts of data, such as musical samples, and generate new samples that follow the same patterns and styles.

What does AI bring to Music creation

Generative AI has already been used to create music in various genres and styles, such as classical, jazz, pop, rock, and even chiptune. Some examples of generative AI music are Mubert, Jukebox, and MusicLM. These models can generate music based on text descriptions, hummed melodies, or musical parameters. They can also transform existing songs into different genres or styles.

But what does this mean for the profession of music directors and singers? Will generative AI disrupt their roles and creativity? Will it replace human musicians or enhance them? Will it democratize music production or create new challenges?

There is no definitive answer to these questions, as generative AI is still a developing field with many limitations and possibilities. Some may argue that generative AI can never capture the human emotions, expressions, and nuances that make music so powerful and personal. Others may argue that generative AI can augment human musicians by providing them with new tools, inspirations, and collaborations. Some may fear that generative AI in music will make it more homogeneous and less original. Others may hope that generative AI will make music more accessible and diverse.

Spotify cracks the Whip

Spotify recently made headlines as it removed ‘tens of thousands’ of  AI-generated songs from its platform, raising questions about the impact of Artificial Intelligence on the music industry. These songs were created using machine learning algorithms, and while they showcased technical proficiency, they lacked the emotional depth and authenticity that humans bring to music. This event highlights the ongoing debate surrounding the role of AI in creative fields. While AI can assist in various aspects of music production and discovery. It is clear that human artistry and expression remain indispensable. As technology continues to evolve, it is essential to strike a balance between innovation and preserving the unique human touch that defines the music industry.

The future of music is uncertain, but one thing is clear: generative AI is changing the way we create and consume music. Whether we embrace it or resist it, we cannot ignore it.
