What Students Are Saying About A.I.-Generated Music


A.I. can only copy, not create, and therefore should not be treated as the future of music. While I would listen to a good lo-fi tune, I would never, ever, consider A.I.-music as “real” music. Music is abstract and deep in meaning, and A.I.-generated songs discredit it.

I would 100% listen to a song if I knew if it was sung by a machine. I already have, through social media platforms, such as TikTok. I think it is insane how A.I. can replicate voices, and have them sing distinct notes, phrases, and rhythms to fit other songs. And it sounds believable too!

Honestly, I think I would still listen to music if it was sung by a machine, because I don’t really care who the song is written by as long as it sounds good. As of now, I don’t even pay attention to who sings some songs when I’m listening to them … I think after reading this article, I’m partly afraid yet also excited, because I would love to see what A.I. can come up with next.

I’ve seen a few TikTok’s of people using A.I. to make it sound like artists like Kanye West or Olivia Rodrigo are singing Taylor Swift songs. I listened to them for fun and I find it very fascinating how A.I. is able to recreate these artists’ voices and make it so accurate. However, I don’t think that listening to a song purely made from A.I. would have the same meaning to me.

Honestly I would definitely listen to music made by A.I. because if I think it sounds good, and I like it, more than likely I will listen to it. I think the rapper whose vocals are impersonated should get an incentive for that, but I think that A.I. has been used for so long behind our backs, and now that it’s slowly getting crazier and crazier, it’s going to be the new norm.
