This week on the podcast, Dani Deahl and host Dmitri Vietze look at all the cans of worms that Artificial Intelligence has opened for the music biz, and how AI contributes to the seismic shifts we’ve been tracking in the industry. Listen in on a lively back and forth as they take sides on a multitude of issues: Will AI ever be able to create a pop hit all on its own? Where is the line between useful AI tools and replacements for human creativity ? Can ownership and copyright issues around AI be addressed on the software developers’ side, with Terms of Service for example, or is it going to take lawmaking and regulation?
Dani Deahl is our hero at Music Tectonics: as The Verge’s music tech journalist, she makes complex issues accessible without losing nuance. She’s also a DJ, producer, and VP of the Recording Academy’s Chicago chapter, so she talks about AI and music creation with passion and knowledge. That’s why we’re so excited that she’s not only a podcast guest, she’s also going to be our AI’s Got Talent MC at the Music Tectonics Conference! Connect with her on Twitter, her website, and all over the interwebs. Do not miss her new season of The Future of Music- the first episode explores the creation of Erik Prydz’s jaw-dropping Holosphere, and that’s just the beginning!
