Here are new demos of some AI-generated music. Thoughts?

Artificial intelligence is not creative. All any program can do is analyze data points based on information fed to it by humans. When it comes to AI music, programs learn from human-created tunes, looking for patterns, and then return results based on prompts made by us meatbags. It’s high-tech mimckry. For now.

AI-generated music is getting better. Here are a couple of examples.

Suno

Anyone can use Suno to make a song. All you have to do is go to the website and type in a request and Suno will make a song based on that. I asked the program for a song about my two beloved English bull terriers. It took less than 15 seconds to deliver this ditty called “Paws of Thunder.” Not bad. Not a fan of the Auto Tune vocals, though.

Stable-Audio-Demo

AI is a useful tool when it comes to creating production music, the kind of stuff heard in the background of videos and commercials. As such, Stable-Audio-Demo doesn’t bother creating vocals. It does, however, create credible unemotive music.

The robots are coming for us.
