The Rise of AI-Generated Music One of the most significant changes we expect to see in electronic music in 2023 is the rise of AI-generated music.

AI technology has advanced significantly in recent years, making it possible to create music that is almost indistinguishable from human-produced music. This development has the potential to transform the way music is made and consumed. The problems with Ai have already shown to be more of a negative for talented creators who spend time making music.

The Problem with Ai Generated Music

The issue at hand is that artificial intelligence is creating music based on existing material, but the original creators of that material are not being compensated, and it’s unclear who owns the new music that’s being generated. A recent example is a song called “Heart on My Sleeve” which was released on various streaming platforms and attributed to “Ghostwriter” with vocals from Drake and The Weeknd. However, neither artist had anything to do with the song, which was generated by AI using existing recordings. The song was eventually removed from streaming platforms after UMG demanded it be taken down. This incident has brought attention to the issue and sparked discussion in the music industry.

Universal Music Group (UMG), one of the industry’s giants, is challenging the right of streaming platforms to play AI-based works that essentially riff off their vast catalogue of copyrighted material.

UMG sent letters to Spotify, Apple Music, and other streaming platforms asking them to block AI platforms from sifting through their copyrighted material in order to train itself to compose. Universal represents internationally recognized pop stars like The Weeknd, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande, and it looks like they have reason to be concerned.

The Grey Area of Copyright Law in AI-generated Music

This grey area raises questions about who owns the copyright of AI-generated works and whether they can be copyrighted at all. Some argue that the developers or owners of the AI technology should hold the copyright, while others believe that the AI system itself should be recognized as the creator and thus hold the copyright. As AI technology continues to advance, it is likely that this issue will become even more complex and require further examination by lawmakers and legal experts.

Located in: Den Haag, The Netherlands Sounds like: Mount Shrine / r beny / Burial Correlations Part Three
The EP: “Correlations”

“Correlations” is my second EP as Njordlyd. An EP consisting of 5 tracks that continues the industrial and dark ambient-styled music from the album “Getting Closer”. “Correlations Part Three” is the 3rd track on the EP “Correlations”. The journey continues with the feeling of being sad, somewhere in a melancholic place (or space) with life and activity. A nature-like environment, open and spacious. It then slowly transitions into a somewhat more active or busy place (or space), a less nature-like environment. Somewhere with a slightly more industrial and underground feel to it, a sort of downwards atmosphere.


2Ten — Swarm 3 (original mix)

Music Genre: House
Vibe: Melodic
Located in: Canada Sounds
Swarm 3 is a sequel to the original Swarm (Swarm 2 is coming), which I recently discovered to be a new production technique. This is a sound experience made composed of rhythms, percussion, and ambient textures that work together to allow the listener to hear the warmup, the warning then the attack of harmonies and melodies.

Attached is an animated video made by the artist for per chi non muora.

Also a graphic designer, the artist wants to use digital technology to mix forms of expression, both music and design, together.
