Music As A Commodity: Songwriting With Artificial Intelligence

Computer-generated music still has a ways to go

  • Computers helping humans create original music has become today’s standard, but there are several companies looking to turn the tables on this process.
  • The main reason the AI approach stands out is because it is certifiably confirming music as a commodity (similar to some of today’s inexpensive stock libraries) by ironically placing computers in the driver’s seat of the creative process.
  • While this could be a really beneficial tool to content creators, it’s an uncharted territory for the music industry.
  • We are now watching 1 billion hours of YouTube content every single day, and while some content creators may value music based on principle, the reality is that they can’t afford to match that value with a financial investment that costs more than a turkey sandwich.
  • Jordan Passman is the Founder & CEO of SCORE A SCORE, an LA-based company focused on simplifying custom music and licensing.
