AI-generated music is a fascinating new field, and deep-pocketed research outfit OpenAI has hit new heights in it, creating recreations of songs in the style of Elvis, 2Pac, and others. The results are convincing, but fall squarely in the unnerving “uncanny valley” of audio, sounding rather like good, but drunk, karaoke heard through a haze of drugs. Jukebox, the organization’s new music-generating system, was detailed in a blog post and paper published today. OpenAI produced some interesting...

Jukebox was trained on massive datasets of music across nearly every genre so that it can create completely fresh songs that, in many cases, sound very much like the artist(s) it was trained on. Much like other networks learn to transfer the style of a painting or other artwork from one image to another, Juke...

‘Ballet Conductors Are The Hidden Heroes Of The Art Form’

Sarah Kaufman: “They can serve as guardian angels of the evening, controlling the musical universe and its atmosphere, smoothing over mishaps and delivering well-timed thunderbolts with a wave of the baton.
