    This video was, like I said, a fun mess. It balances a lot of thoughts I’ve been having about music and the everpresent noise that surrounds us in the discourse void. I still hope you enjoy it and I hope it made sense, and if you didn’t enjoy/it didn’t make sense, uhhhhhhhh next video is a DDD??

    (Also as usual, captions should be available within the next few days.)

    Good. People can finally see how bad most pop music is. Most popular music today is no better than AI music. Most people don't actually like music anyway. They just like 4/4 simple repetitive dance music with simple harmony and cliche and easy to understand lyrics.

    Taylor Swift is a prime example of AI music made by people. All most people care about is 1) Image 2) Easy to dance to. So basically a drum machine with a marketable face rapping or singing.

    It's all just auto tuned, lip syncing, and robotic music. Most so called "artists" don't even write their own music, can't sing without autotune, don't know how play any instruments, and many aren't even good at dancing. The days of Milli Vanilli getting mobbed for lip syncing are long gone. Now so-called "artists" like Taylor Swift become super famous. Lil Yacht didn't even know the difference between a flute or a cello, and there was even a famous rapper who didn't even know what a guitar was when he has shown one.

    Mediocre talentless "artists" who just sell-outs who just want to be famous and have fun and make money. They are easier to control because they are disposable and they can be easily replaced by the next young pretty desperate sell-out. The music industry doesn't want to deal with talented artists who can make their own demands and who aren't easily replaceable. That's why there will never be another Beatles or Michael Jackson. MJ was a good singer and dancer since the Jackson 5, and then as a solo artist he actually wrote most of his own music and lyrics, and he actually sang during most live performances. It wasn't just fake AI auto-tuned robotic lip syncing.

    The problem with artists using AI to help them, is how does anyone know what portion of their work was them and what was the AI.
    Also I'm speaking from the standpoint that AI is beyond a tool. It's a very "smart" one if it is.

    9:46 Any records, that are loved and appreciated by anybody, in any place and time, are not disposable. Obviously, all things are ultimately transitory, but I mean "disposable" in the sense you mean. I think MOST music is mostly disposable to most people, though. I agree to that extent. As music has been devalued, and record collections aren't so important anymore in the mainstream, and with oversaturation of new music, specific albums are less culturally important than it was 20 years ago, statistically. Considering the democratization of the tools of music making and especially distribution, this trend was unavoidable.

    That's great though, that more individuals can make and share music than ever before! There are still culturally significant albums being released, but the best ones don't necessarily try to appeal to everyone. We have more than a few media outlets today, and people have developed diverse musical interests. The downside, of less money being distributed to many more artists, is that we don't see as much push – less elaborate musical and video productions, less swag. The money goes towards the tour rather than towards the album, by simple investor's logic.

    I'll use AI as a tool if it suits me, if I find something about it useful and/or fun as part of the creative process in making music. In some ways I actually hope AI creates some new form of music that makes us cry and laugh in amazement… a type of music that we never would have created on our own. Maybe the AI could even choose humans they'd want to collaborate with.

    I'm against the idea of Spotify using AI for flooding their playlists with royalty-free (for them) tracks… unless the AI is relatively unrestricted in its musical choices, and has full access to feedback from the listeners… IOW, if it's more of a machine learning experiment than a situation that would fuel greed and feelings of superiority among the tech execs. They're actually stewards of western music, and potentially of powerful AI tech, if this scenario plays out (salting their charts with their own AI music). If they approach the situation with full compassion, I think the next Spotify could be profitable if they didn't pay ridiculous fees to the very upper echelon. That's another area where AI might actually help level that playing field (our greatest artists didn't "make it big". No, I don't mean me🤣). But, I think collaboration is the best musical path with AI. I'm hoping for some amazing music, and hopefully we can help🤣🤣😛🐵💻

    I am NEVER going to ask my Toyota to take a nice vacation for me, or ask my 1977 Les Paul to play a solo for me. These items help me accomplish a goal, but I am the master. What happens when the AI is disgusted with humanity for being so fucking lazy that the humans can't learn scales or chords or theory anymore and, wasting a talent that few other beings have to let alone MAKE music (like a bird singing) but to arrange it into complex forms, just give up and allow the machine to do it? This isn't the horse VS the model T, Y'know – you're asking the AI to REPLACE you. The car OR the horse never replaced you, they HELPED you and were fed food and gas as a reward, so to speak. NEVER let the ARTIFICIAL replace you – do the fuckin' work yourselves and use the tools to HELP, not replace. I'm 70 and I record every day of the week!! Yes, there's life after 30!! But I guess this will fall on DEAF EARS??????????????????

    5:24 btw vocaloid isn’t the same as ai!!! vocaloid is a software that takes a lot of time and effort to make covers with and you definitely would not be able to produce vocals as realistic as that. You have to manually put in the notes and type in the lyrics, and tune them with parameters. Ai just does everything for you and you can make it sound almost identical to the person you want. very different!!

    I can't wait till the day AI music finally replaces useless entertainers.

    Absolute waste of money and they produce nothing meaningful, send them to the offices and factories instead.

    I think it's funny listening to this generation complain about AI music. That garbage you've listened to your whole life is basically the same thing. Play random arrangements until something sounds good, repeat it for 2.5 minutes and there's your "song". Wtf do you care? Real music has been nearly impossible to find for like 2+ decades, this is just the next logical step in the shit parade.

    As a consumer, I want good music. Humans aren't making that much good music nowadays. I am not morally obligated to dislike AI, I don't care what you "creative" types keep trying to say, the only reason that you are threatened by AI is because it's doing your job better than you.

    In Atlus Shrugged, the leftist government decides to put a freeze on all new art. I think it was art, could have just been books, I read it a while ago and it sucked anyway. Point is either part or all of art was put on hold. They predicted that artists would actually not have a big problem with the situation. There just already was so much art out there. There was, in their mind, enough art already. So, artists would get a break, and make some money off their old work, and works that didn't get a fair shake back in the day would get a second look.

    This was presented as the stupidest, most dunderheaded commie bullshit under the sun

    Times like these make me think back to Atlus Shrugged, and think, what a dream that would be. Wouldn't it just be so nice if art, stopped? Or not so much art, but, yeah. That other thing. The C word. Content. There's enough. Just stop. Maybe art should never have been a living. Or anything else for that matter. Maybe living should always have been the living, and the art is just how we might spend a bit of the living. What if, legally, you were only allowed to consume exactly as much art as you create. And the only legal way to pay for art, was with your own art. That'd be something.

    Anyway, 120k songs a day is too many songs
