What stops us from engaging with music created by a computer?
Or put another way would we prefer to listen to Miles Davis than music created by artificial intelligence?
Most of us would jump at the question’s answer.
Miles Davis is human and music is about evoking human emotion.
Until it isn’t.
What will happen when AI can duplicate or even exceed human emotion?
It will happen.
It is just a matter of time.
Is it the music and its connection we love or the emotions that music engenders?
Would Beethoven’s 9th connect less if Beethoven was the name of a computer script?
Food for thought.
