My singing tutor told me about https://moises.ai today. You upload a music track it separates out the voices, backing tracks, and individual instruments. Great for making your own backing tracks, learning to play a song, deconstructing a piece. There's also a tool for mastering your own tracks and lyric writing with AI suggestions for rhymes. I've never been a lyricist and I don't think AI has made me any better, but it did speed up the process! https://studio.moises.ai/lyric-writer/34030cbc-2ff1-46ee-87bf-34162323c39f/automated-blues #AIinEdu #AIMusic
Well, this was a fun project. I've been playing with #Suno all day today trying to understand the limits.
They are pretty small. I used the website to generate song ideas, and then when I found a style and tone & worked the lyrics. Took it back to the Discord & slowly built it up.
Not as good if I had a band and I could sing. But since I can't and I don't, I'm really happy.

Judy garland sings the lyrics if smashmouth's all stars to the tune of Somewhere Over The Rainbow. #AIMusic
I think the answer is somewhere between "no", "probably not" and "it depends". But #AIMusic is still in its infancy. Within a few years we may have to rethink our definitions of art and music.
It writes "music" in any genre. And astonishingly it sings it too. It will use your own lyrics or, if you prefer, ChatGPT or a combination of the two.
And while its at it, it will create an #AIArt image based on the lyrics.
Here's an introductory example. The lyrics are mine, but everything else is AI.
When I was messing around with the music AI, I accidentally trained it to produce an amazing piece of bass music, and then I... decided to go all out and created a dynamic music video using some visual preset to make it look like a proper music video.

What I don't get is "why can't we have it do text on another layer and not generate that with AI, but have the program generate it the way any program that can make text would? a user could also then input their own fonts, and since they are on another layer they could be moved around and resized if they didn't appear within text bubbles where they belong.

My first release of an AI pop glitch mix:
#AI does not create. It is not #creative. It generates text, pixels, & sound waves based on algorithms. It lacks emotion, experience, and, perhaps most importantly, MOTIVATION. It responds to prompts dictated by humans and has no reasons on its own to do anything. It is not conscious. It has no desires to impress, inspire, influence, connect, or even to make money.
God help us if #Skynet ever becomes self-aware.
I'll also go ahead and link Nick Cave's response to #ChatGPT generating lyrics "in the style of Nick Cave," since he's awesome and his response is awesome and every musician should read it and think about why and how you create #Art 5/
Plus, as I've written about before, #AI has no tastes or preferences. It can't determine if the #music or #lyrics it's generated are GOOD or appropriate. It has no emotions or experiences, so it can't gauge whether it has simulated those to a human's satisfaction.
Ultimately, a human must still determine what to use and what to discard based on their human tastes, preferences, experiences, and emotions. 4/
Here's the thread: https://mastodon.social/@KydiaMusic/110437517593122462
I’m frustrated with #musicians who get SO excited about #AI tools that can write melodies and write chord progressions and write lyrics and do the producing, and use generative voice software to sing the song for them.
Like, do you even enjoy making #music? Or do you just want to make money? Because there are far easier ways to make money.
Last week I did a live sound performance with real-time AI audio (also my first solo live gig in a looong time).
I put a recording up along with some thoughts on how it came together here:

"And so, in that spirit, for those of you who are thinking creatively for the first time, I’d like to introduce you to the idea of the edit."
This is also true for music! Edit your arrangements, edit your lyrics, edit how long the song "needs" to be. Rarely have I met a song too short, but (thanks to #ADHD) I often encounter songs and tunes that feel too long.
I am all up for filling Spotify up to the top with AI-generated music.
Their customers won't notice. Those half-humans (culturally ;) don't know track/song titles or care to memorize artists names anyways. ... listening to auto-compiled playlist all day long is their (poor) thing.
Why bother putting any more human work in it?
(I never did. Excuse the screaming.)

Those last 9 toots were taken from the original image I posted, where the text was too small to see. Thanks for your patience. 🙏
If you've read this far, congratulations! :pensive_party_blob:
Please check out my latest single. It was created 100% by a real human person (me) based on a little piece of my soul. The artwork is also made by my talented human friends. 10/10
We cannot even say they are "dumb"--there is not "they!" The model is narrowly capable of doing one thing--derivative outputs based on the unethical, nonconsensual, inhuman processing of billions of data points, including artwork.
The AIs, on the other hand, process pictures completely on the pixel level, with no added layers of understanding or emotion or nuance. They ingest art in a distinctly inhuman way--can you recall every pixel of the images you are referencing? Do you have any hope of replicating their details in seconds after a mere glance? No, artists do not use source images in the same way as AI, and why would we want to?
This malleable and subjective interpretation of images is one of the reasons that artists generally cannot replicate images exactly, and most do not want to. Generally speaking, artistic communities value originality, creativity, invention, and subversion of expectation.
A human will view the image of another artist in a thousand different ways on any given day based on their mood, focus, beliefs, and lived human experience. They will understand parts of an image differently according to recent insights. Even the most familiar pictures, ones we have known for years, will unfold new depths as we develop our skills and acumen.
Given the same prompt and seed number, you can generate the exact same image as someone else, ...you can even reverse engineer the prompt if you have the image and seed number. Their "learning," unlike yours, is frozen in a particular state and unable to evolve.
Humans are never trapped in such a state. We are always advancing our world view and filtering through lenses of emotion and mood unique to conscious beings, which an AI is not.
To believe that machine learning is the same as human learning assumes that consciousness, sentience, and self-awareness have nothing to do with learning. It also falsely assumes that human creativity is based on the same statistical methods that the machine models employ. Machine learning models are not subjective interpreters of image like humans are--they are probabilistic data tables and they cannot reference data with subtlety or contextual understanding.

"AI doesn't steal art it simply combines images in the same way that humans do. If you reference artists then AI should be ablt to do it as well."
Steven's Response: This argument contains two false premises. First, doing something the way humans do is not an argument to allow the behavior, humans can learn to do all sorts of illegal or unethical things. Second, this argument creates a false equivalence between machine learning and human learning. (cont.) #AIArt #AIMusic #AI #MusicProduction
This post says it better than I can. Sorry, I can't fit all the text into the Alt Text box, so I will also try to break it up into a series of toots. Thanks for your patience, or just mute me if this is not Your Thang.
The argument that "humans also reference/train on others' art in order to make their own, AI just does it faster and more efficiently" is not accurate, since AI is NOT processing that art and filtering it through its own subjective framework (the soul as defined above) to create a new work to express that individual's particular ideas and emotions.
AI has no framework to know if what it's creating is GOOD, or even accurate, b/c it has no preferences regarding taste or accuracy--which are so subjective when it comes to creativity.
Can AI make aesthetically-pleasing shit? Of course! Based on the output of thousands of human artists over hundreds of years.
But when you ask it to make something entirely new, even based on very specific directions, or even just the random roulette of gibberish commands, it STILL has to rely on and copy human artists.
By "soul" I mean your mind, will, emotions, experiences, taste, and preferences--everything that makes you who you are.
Also, making good art and recognizing good art requires having good taste, and I'm not sure that's something you can teach to AI.
Good article about the oncoming menace of low-quality AI Generative Music, what it means for indie artists and streaming platform users:
"Today, the world’s most powerful corporations are aggressively investing in the idea that generators are going to fundamentally change our collective relationship with media."
The whole article is worth a read!
Frank Ocean communities on Discord and leaked music forums were in a frenzy over newly discovered music from the reclusive artist. It turns out most of it was AI-generated and sold by a scammer.

1. Nothing new abt click fraud. It's been around since the dawn of internet ads. #AImusic = great way to take fraudulent advantage of streaming services. Prob lots on YouTube too.
2. Plenty of "legitimate" uses, maybe even some interesting ones.
3. #AI driving a larger divide in cultural expression btn stuff made for profit & stuff made for passion. Prob good for everyone except musicians who earn $ making commodity music.
Nobody wants this. Nobody wants to hear Biggie shouting out rappers who weren't even born yet when he died. It's one thing to remix old vocals or release unused vocals, but it's a totally different thing to use his voice to make something "new." Making Biggie say words he didn't actually write is just... yuck.
Though I think the biggest part of music that will be affected is mixing/mastering. Think about how the DAW almost removed the need for the recording studio. If you can train a model to emulate mixing decisions, then it can drive the faders/EQ knobs. Maybe the first application will be fancy sidechain or fancy vocal ducking (plugins that exist already, but could be made fancier). #ai #chatgpt #llm #model #training #AIMusic #music #MusicProduction #Mixing #Mastering
I wrote a blog post to bring some closure to a year of AI audio software prototyping. TLDR: OS AI music frameworks are definitely ready for primetime. However, they will require a team effort to fully realize their potential. So thats whats next for me!
My biggest problem with the current glut of #AI projects is they do very little to help advance humanity in any positive direction, and in fact feel like a step backwards.
Things like #ChatGPT #AIArt #AIMusic are more like demos - interesting toys, but both redundant and harmful in many ways. All we've done is automate bitrot since most of this stuff will just ultimately go nowhere. So much energy wasted.
When can we get back to making useful AI like anomaly detection with humans in the loop?
