Watch and listen — October 2023 Classical Music Daily Newsletter :
American composer, educator and public speaker John Dante Prevedini's online discussion Classical Music and Artificial Intelligence took place and was recorded on Saturday 23 September 2023.
The subject for discussion was Classical Music and Artificial Intelligence, covering all aspects of how AI might change the classical music world, from AI music analysers, generators, platforms, recognisers and services to philosophical questions about who or what classical music is for, and how the answers might change if non-human entities begin to compose, perform, teach or write about music. Artificial intelligence is here to stay, and we musicians should try to assess how it might affect our future lives and careers if, for example, future music can make itself.
The main question asked in the session is as follows:
What are the ways in which we envision AI might impact the field of classical music, and what can we do to prepare? (Considered from the perspectives of composing, performance, teaching, music journalism and other viewpoints.)
