Grimes has discussed AI and streaming services, and said he thinks Spotify and others should have a dedicated section on AI and streaming services.
The singer recently revealed that he was beta testing his own AI voice imitation software that would allow users to record vocals in Grimes’ voice, and Quito’s hit single featuring “AI Grimes” was released shortly after. .
Now, in a conversation with Jaguar, utopia talk In a podcast, Grimes talked about consenting to AI and artist voices being used by others.
“I think it’s good to have agreement,” she replied. “I don’t mind it personally, but I still think it’s good to respect people. Even if they don’t want it… it’s hard. Give up creative control.” It’s like being there, so you have to be open to it.
“I think there’s a system that makes it a little easier. Just like we really want to petition Spotify, we have top tracks, then new albums, then new releases and features.” It’s like,” she added.
“For example, if we also created an AI section, it would be easier to compartmentalize them. I think it will be a little easier to manage…”
Regarding using vocals from deceased artists, Grimes added: i would say no. But I also think someone like Prince might get depressed. I mean, if I was just making a phone call, I’d say Prince’s friend could, Lizzo could, but I wouldn’t.
“I don’t know, but maybe that feels like a reasonable way to deal with it. I don’t know. It’s hard. It’s really hard. I really don’t know, because if I’m dead and all of this Because if I died before it happened, I would really want people to do it, but I don’t know if everyone else would.”
The singer and producer also discussed copyright issues, which she previously shared her hatred for. “Copyright sucks. I don’t think art belongs to anyone,” she told Jagger.
“Why shouldn’t anyone be able to use your voice or anything like that?” When they run camps, they search the world for the best people to come and write, and spend this much money on it. It’s like being able to just make your voice heard to the public without spending that money. And you’re going to paint from a wider pool, like what the end result of great art would be. “
She added, “I think there’s too much control now, like controlling everything top-down. If you look at TikTok, like in the early days of TikTok, a lot of the viral music is so weird and cool.” I think it was something that would never play on the radio, Imanbeck Rhodes songs like that would never play on the radio, on the radio, you know?
“Weird stuff went viral and then slowly, like a stranglehold, a gatekeeper stranglehold spread on TikTok. To do.”
In late April, Grimes confirmed that he was parting ways with Columbia Records. She had just joined the group in March 2021. She also spoke at the annual International Music Summit (IMS) in Ibiza on April 28, where she delivered a keynote address hosted by Dance DJ Jaguar on BBC Radio 1. In her speech, she touched on topics related to artificial intelligence, music rights management, and technology.
“I strongly feel that music has too many gatekeepers,” Grimes said. “Copyright sucks. Art is a conversation with everyone who has lived before us. It’s a modern concept to associate it with the ego. The music industry is defined by lawyers. , which is stifling creativity.”
