The Artist's Guide to Navigating the Digital Frontier

Rhythm & Tech Digest: AI in Music & Spotify's Stance πŸŽΆπŸ€–

This week, we're diving into a hot topic that's been buzzing in the tech and music spheres: the role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in music creation. Spotify's boss, Daniel Ek, recently spoke to the BBC about this, and his insights are worth noting. 🎧

The AI Debate in Music πŸ€”

Daniel Ek revealed that Spotify has no plans to completely ban AI-created content. However, he emphasized that AI should not be used to impersonate human artists without their consent. He sees three "buckets" of AI use in music:

  1. Tools like auto-tune that improve music.

  2. Tools that mimic artists, which are not acceptable.

  3. A middle ground where AI-created music is influenced by existing artists but doesn't impersonate them.

The Industry's Challenge πŸŽ΅πŸ”—

AI in music is a contentious issue, and Ek believes it will be debated for "many, many years." Artists like Hozier have even considered striking over the threat of AI to their profession.

Spotify's Investment in Podcasts πŸŽ™οΈ

Ek also discussed Spotify's huge investment in podcasts, including high-profile figures like Michelle and Barack Obama and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. He admitted that some investments worked, while others didn't.
