It seems as if AI will turn the world around 180 degrees and have a strong influence on our everyday lives. And artificial intelligence has also arrived in music production. And not just because of Sir Paul Mc Cartney’s plan to publish a new Beatles song in which an artificial intelligence is supposed to imitate not only the voice of the long-dead John Lennon but also his creativity. In this panel, Sound Engineers Warren Huart (The Fray, Aerosmith) and Jaycen Joshua (Beyoncé, Michael Jackson) discuss the future of the music industry. It’s not just about how music will be written, produced and recorded, but also how it will be consumed in the future.
