Music & AI Had Another Big Week...


by Rob Abelow, Founder of Where Music's Going: Insights & tactics for music's future, LinkedIn, May 5, 2023


I'm exhausted.


We are seeing backlash reactions, early angles on licensing, and a look into where all these AI deepfakes are coming from.


Here's 8 things to focus on:

Key term: 100%. They also say the technology to detect AI tracks exists & they are working with devs on it. We are about to see a lot of posturing as aggregators & platforms fear the hammer (while simultaneously trying to tap into AI systems they like).

Toggle on AI Friendly & others can upload tracks 'inspired by' you. Tracks then appear in a Generated with AI area on your profile. Unclear if artists can monetize or enforce rules. Or how the tracks are authenticated for using artist AI.

They say it will "significantly lower the music creation barrier." Everyone on earth is about to become a "music creator". Heavy on the quotes here. Interactivity is where we're going.

Spotify says the takedown is due to stream fraud. Streaming has a lot of issues that are only getting bigger. Boomy users have created nearly 14% of the world's recorded music: 14m+ songs ๐Ÿซ .

Training platform Hugging Face now shows what elements have opted-in using Spawning's artist consent API. Consent is integral in protecting artist rights with AI.

KORUS allows artists to create using officially licensed IP & virtual AI companions. Train your companion to evolve & level up based on your choices, as you play with them in their flagship game ELYNXIR.

Warpsound took vocal stems fro the track 'Bruises', plugged it into their Nayomi AI music model, generated an AI remix, then released it exclusively to the Warpsounds community.


This is an interesting blend of AI, web3 & community.

The 'AI Hub' Discord is one of the largest communities making, sharing & teaching how to create AI songs. Over 21,000 users, guides & AI voice models trained on 30+ popular singers. 100% unlicensed, untracked, unmonetized.


The Napster of AI will be 1,000 different communities.


Let's create something better.
