Music has over the years proven to be something "Homo sapiens" (man) can't do without in our every day lives. Music has taken a firm stand in the minds of many as a source of life, healing, hope, entertainment and so on.
This reminds me about the question I asked a close friend recently that is it possible for you to hate music? He smile with his left cheek and looked at me from where he was sited and said, I don't think so. He pressed forward and said I don't think any sane man would hate music. I was like what do you mean by that statement? He finally hit the nail on the head and said only an Insane fellow will hate music.

To me, that was really so harsh, but I haven't come across anyone that hates music. Every person I have came across loves a particular genre of music and they feel the vibe, melody and message the music has to give.
However, this doesn't change the fact that music, it's style, composition and mode of play might not remain the same in ten years time.
I believe that this statement that I just made above is relatable and seen in the present world of now.
The style, and composition of music in the 60's and currently is so different as this generation musicians comes on with a different melody entirely different from what our fathers presented in the days of the old.

You might be thinking I meant something regular when I said the future of music..... Hahaha, it's about to take a twist now!


Artificial intelligence according to "google" is the simulation of human intelligence processes by machine, especially computer systems. The word "simulation" means imitation.... which in lay-man's word means copying.
So, technologists have been able to come up with something beautiful for real, something that is somewhat like we humans, that can have it's own reasoning, that can solve it's own problems, that can carry out tasks on it's own.

So, it's becoming clearer now that robots are now gradually occupying and filling up that "human labor" space.
It's so glaring now that there is almost nothing that robots, machines and computers can't carry out.

I would love to stir this up:

1. No matter the development of AI to become so good even to the extent of getting involved in music making, can it replace human or take human's place in that field?

2. With the level of development of AI, does human still stand a chance with music making in the future? (10 years to come)




A lo largo de los años, la música ha demostrado ser algo de lo que el "Homo sapiens" (hombre) no puede prescindir en nuestra vida cotidiana. La música ha tomado una posición firme en la mente de muchos como fuente de vida, curación, esperanza, entretenimiento, etc.
Esto me recuerda la pregunta que le hice a un amigo cercano recientemente: ¿es posible que odies la música? Sonrió con su mejilla izquierda y me miró desde donde estaba sentado y dijo, no lo creo. Siguió adelante y dijo que no creo que ningún hombre en su sano juicio odie la música. Yo estaba como ¿qué quieres decir con esa declaración? Finalmente dio en el clavo y dijo que sólo un loco odiará la música.

Para mí, eso fue muy duro, pero no he conocido a nadie que odie la música. Todas las personas con las que me he encontrado aman un género musical en particular y sienten la vibra, la melodía y el mensaje que la música tiene para dar.
Sin embargo, esto no cambia el hecho de que la música, su estilo, composición y forma de tocar podrían no seguir siendo los mismos dentro de diez años.
Creo que esta declaración que acabo de hacer arriba es identificable y vista en el mundo actual de ahora.
El estilo y la composición de la música en los años 60 y en la actualidad es tan diferente que esta generación de músicos viene con una melodía diferente, completamente diferente de lo que nuestros padres presentaron en los días de antaño.

Puede que estés pensando que quise decir algo normal cuando dije el futuro de la música... Jajaja, ¡ahora está a punto de dar un giro!


La inteligencia artificial según "google" es la simulación de procesos de inteligencia humana por máquina, especialmente sistemas informáticos. La palabra "simulación" significa imitación.... que en la palabra del profano significa copiar.
Entonces, los tecnólogos han podido llegar a algo hermoso de verdad, algo que se parece un poco a nosotros los humanos, que puede tener su propio razonamiento, que puede resolver sus propios problemas, que puede realizar tareas por sí mismo.

Por lo tanto, se está volviendo más claro ahora que los robots ahora están ocupando y llenando gradualmente ese espacio de "trabajo humano".
Es tan evidente ahora que no hay casi nada que los robots, las máquinas y las computadoras no puedan llevar a cabo.

Me encantaría remover esto:

1. No importa el desarrollo de la IA para volverse tan buena, incluso hasta el punto de involucrarse en la creación de música, ¿puede reemplazar a los humanos o tomar el lugar de los humanos en ese campo?

2. Con el nivel de desarrollo de la IA, ¿los humanos todavía tienen alguna posibilidad de hacer música en el futuro? (10 años por venir)



That are some great question. My answer to both, are a definite YES.

AI can create music that moves people and will become even better in this over time. A great test done years ago, proved this. An AI created a classical arrangement which was brought to the audience by a real live orchestra in the Royal Albert Hall in London. When this piece was played, a team of researches analysing the emotions of the audience and noticed significant human emotional reactions to the music played. And remember, the complete arrangement was created by an AI algorithm.

Even when AI is able to replace the artist by creating pieces of music that moves people, I do believe us humans will like to listen to less synthetic created and played music as well. Though I have multiple experiences that suggest otherwise. I mean, I've seen crowds going nuts on sounds and DVD visuals in a real club setting, while the artist was chilling backstage. Even when afterwards the artist did his thing on stage, I didn't notice any difference in the going nuts levels, suggesting the crowd was as pleased with the 'presentation' when a DVD was played as when the artist himself performed. And remember, this was in a club, a real live setting. Not at home playing music on a HIFI setup or TV ;) That said, when AI is gonna spit out gazillion great pieces of music, I do believe enough human beings will want to listen to life performances of artists. They may even demand artists to create their own pieces. Though the artist may simply use AI to create the pieces. Certainly, we will see some interesting behaviours happening in the next one to two decades. Well, for AI mand music, maybe already coming few years.


Wow, do you know that I never saw this coming at all...

I never at all knew that something like this has taken place before

I only woke up to that thought few days ago and started writing because I was looking at the way AI is rapidly replacing human labor in many aspects of life.
Then, I as a musician now with all sincerity thought that what will happen to music in 10 years time with those few questions...

However, I'm glad you stopped by to share your point of view which has now expanded my knowledge towards this topic.
Thanks @edje for your view🤗


Owww on the front of AI and music, there is so much you can find on the internet. Last year a entire festival was held, dedicated to this topic (

Back in 2019, Warner Music signed up an AI algorithm for a first AI generated record: ... I blogged about this back then 😉

A whole range of services out in the internet with which one can create unique AI generated music. AIVA is on of them, I used to get a unique piece of music to go with my first ever 3Speak video:
And all that is just the tip of the iceberg. I suggest to spend some time browsing, searching, and reading about AI and music. You'll find some great informaiton out there, from AI electronic tracks to more orchestra's playing AI generated compositions. Added to that, you'll find a lot of debates about the questions you asked in your blog post. It's super interesting.

On visual art work, the other day an entry in some painting challenge, the winner turned out to be a fully AI generated painting. The artist only informed the award organisation and the world, after the award were handed out. Am pretty sure this will happen in many art forms, AI generated pieces to compete with the 'manual' created art works. Who knows, maybe AI generated pieces will be the winner more often, maybe even the winner all the time.

Recently I was listening to this podcast in which some specialist from the art segment said something in the lines of: Never ever will AI generated artwork be chosen above traditional human made artwork, since the fans want the story behind the art. However, I beg to differ. Will some prefer to know the story behind/around a piece of art, other don't. some artists even state themselves their artworks shall be 100% about the piece itself, not about the story that comes along with it. With AI generated artworks being onpar with human created artwork, we may see too many new pieces being generated, which may dilute the appreciation of the artworks itself. That would be a pity, but it could definitely be an outcome of all of this.
