  • Dani Deahl heads to Los Angeles to see how artificial intelligence is used in music production. Artist and content creator, Taryn Southern, is recording her debut album which she co-produced with several AI programs, including Amper Music. We sat down with her to see how the process came together.

    How do you think AI could change the music industry?

    Her vocals has an ‘autotune’ quality (not in a good way) to it. Do other people hear that? I have not listened to more than what was presented in this video.

    I like the tech, but the music sucks.It's bland and boring like most pop music. Maybe it's only this song tho.

    After inputting all that source material of pop music, would the results of this program be considered a "derivative work"?

    The problem of using past data to do more music is that you create a self fulfilling prophecy kind of music.... disruptive changes in style will rarely emerge from AI coded like that

    Why do I feel like I've seen this video?

    Is there any kind of fair use laws or copyright issues using music (input) that is already recorded to influence the neural network outcome of the AI music? I feel like this music should be licensed to be input for the neural network to work on. I think we have a lawsuit here.
