This is a single movement piece i wrote for two pianos
This is half of a 4 part setting of Poe’s The Raven, for singer, choir, piano and strings
This is a film score demo i made many years ago in undergrad
This is a movement for full orchestra
... i never said making music was easy. I said when music is simple, it is easy to replicate.
Yeah, getting paid to write music for serious musicians around the world while teaching children and adults music and art is really pathetic.
Now that you’ve had a chance to judge my life, want to share what you do for a living?
Truth is, it’s hard to me to advocate fine art without coming across as a dickhead. I just think people need more exposure to art music, and I shouldn’t try to do that by putting down other music styles. Thanks for listening yo :)
We get to either reference an existing definition for art, or select it ourselves. I feel that it's best for it to be focused more on the experience of the beholder rather than the nature of its producer. Thus it's art if you feel that it's art. So if AI's are potentially producing the art, then it's a little like a Turing test (in that we've punted the whole problem to a human judge).. but the important difference is that we're judging the artness of the piece rather than the humanness of its creator.

Oh, looks like you're right. The final song was still largely human-authored, however. The Adweek article cited says this:
> Lampert said the project made abundantly clear that the tech is not ready to handle a creative project on its own without some heavy human supervision.
Since all of his music is R&Bish auto-tuned, not that hard for a computer to generate that sound. (I have to admit, I've hit the "get off my lawn" phase, missing the "good ole days" of "real music" ie 90's hip hop)
Imagine a GPT2-like algorithm trained on all the world's music. It could then generate practically any style and probably quite creatively.
Then fine-tune it on a particular artist's style. It will then mimic that artist. Depending how strongly you fine tune it, you can bias more strongly towards the target artist or towards general music.
You could then generate music in the same general style as an artist but taking any amount of inspiration from the rest of the world of music. I imagine with enough data and the right algorithms it would work very well and sound fantastic.
The same applies to visual works which I'm sure the reader is familiar with.
Just remember the algorithms we have today are the starting point not the ending point.
