AI’s Influence on Music Is Raising Some Difficult Questions

Then there’s the actual creation of music using AI, which has triggered both excitement and alarm. Musicians have embraced music tools like BandLab, which suggests unique musical loops based on prompts as an escape valve for writer’s block. The AI app Endel generates customized, constantly-mutating soundtracks for focusing, relaxing or sleeping based on people’s preferences and biometric data. Other AI tools create entire recordings based on text prompts. A new YouTube tool powered by Google DeepMind’s large language model Lyria allows users to type in something like “A ballad about how opposites attract, upbeat acoustic,” and a song snippet belted by a Charlie Puth-soundalike is instantly generated.
