AI in music isn’t a new concept, but for the longest time, it was believed that it was the mundane tasks that AI would take over—putting the jobs of assembly line workers and bank tellers in jeopardy.
However, the increasing integration of AI-backed technologies in almost every industry has been the highlight of 2023. So much so that it’s making even the most creative of us, writers, painters, artists, and musicians, wonder if AI will soon take over, making us all redundant.
Here’s why we at Soundbrenner believe this should be celebrated and not feared.
With creativity should come curiosity. As a musician, always be open to new ideas and technologies that can help improve your craft. Remember that innovation is always neutral and is simply a tool for our convenience.
The number one reason AI isn’t coming for your musician’s job is the same reason financial experts are still in business after the invention of the calculator. AI is designed to increase the efficiency and speed of tasks, not take over entire roles and positions.
AI can help musicians collaborate and create genuinely engaging music, regardless of distance. It can inspire songwriters and give new ideas. It can even help musicians perform better by generating data analytics in real time.
True, the nature of some jobs and how we view traditional positions within the music industry might change, but soon enough, there will be demand for musicians that understand the role of AI in music and are willing to work with it, not against it.
That’s why, the sooner musicians embrace AI-powered tools, the better their chances of staying relevant. The use of AI in music will only become more and more commonplace. Even with AI-powered composition technology, there’s still a need for someone to play the music, then fine-tune it, package, market and promote that music.
Integration of AI in music can be invaluable for all genres of musicians, songwriters, and composers.
So, in essence, AI is changing the landscape of our music industry. Some roles will no longer be needed, but many new positions are opening up for us creative musical folks.
One massive benefit of AI is its role in making music composition, singing, and songwriting more accessible for everyone. With the help of AI-powered tools, music can be democratized like never before in history.
While the future looks robo-tastic for AI-powered music, machine learning is just that: learning. AI can copy, replicate and reproduce a piece of music. You’re still in the driving seat when it comes to leading innovation, writing heart-touching lyrics that resonate with listeners, and making new musical breakthroughs.
Plus, the reason we listen to music isn’t just because it sounds nice. Audiences connect with musicians and get emotionally invested. That’s what sells music and drives the industry. This, my friend, cannot be mass-produced by AI on an assembly line. As long as your audience is human, you’ll likely have the edge over any machine or AI-based tool. At Soundbrenner, we call it the magic of the human touch.
