As artificial intelligence continues to advance, it is rapidly transforming the way that music is not only made, but also consumed. AI in music now has the ability to use machine learning algorithms to replace the vocals in a song with the voice of a totally different singer. Suffice to say, we have gotten a lot of wild remixes by AI doing this.
Imagine being able to take a classic rock song and replace the original vocalist with the voice of someone completely different. Or, imagine being able to collaborate with a beloved singer who has passed away, using AI to generate new vocals that sound like they were recorded in the prime of their career.
Recently, a channel on YouTube called ‘AI Remixes’ has been doing just that with many different artists and bands. In fact, for Britpop fans, be sure to rejoice as the AI channel has just put Liam Gallagher with The Verve via their hit, ‘Lucky Man’.
The song itself sounds really good. Liam seems to fit rather seamlessly, and I’m positive that many will feel the exact same way. Give it a listen below.
Some have argued that the ability to replace vocals in a song could be seen as a violation of the original artist’s creative vision and could lead to a loss of authenticity and emotional resonance in the music.
Of course, this also raises ethical questions about the role of technology in music creation. Who owns the rights to these AI-generated performances? How can we ensure that the technology is being used responsibly and not being exploited for commercial gain?
It is clear that AI is changing the music industry in big ways, with an Oasis AI album being created. It will be interesting to see how artists and audiences alike respond to these new possibilities and what kind of music will emerge from this.
