In a world where machines can produce art, create music, and even write stories, many fear that the age of the artist is coming to an end. But is this fear unfounded, or are there real dangers in a world where AI can replicate the creative process?
LOS ANGELES, CA, March 21, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — In the music industry, artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly being used to create works of art, including musical scores for films. Rock band Tragic Bloody Fools turned to AI to create the artwork for their upcoming album, “Pareidolia”, and had some alarming results.
The Southern California-based band, who are known for their heavy, melodic sound and gothic visuals, wanted to create a unique look for their new album cover. With this in mind, they experimented with using a phone app that generates avatars using AI algorithms.
The band fed the app with a variety of images, including photographs of the band members, images of the album’s song titles, and a selection of their own artwork. The app was then able to generate an array of striking, eye-catching images that captured the mood and tone of their music, in a “too-perfect and scary” way.
“What bothered us about it was how good it was… not just at interpreting the song themes, but to some degree, at analyzing our individual personalities,” says guitarist and co-writer Vinay Kumar. “We immediately understood the severity of the threat AI will have to our shared consciousness, and particularly around experiencing art.”
The threat of artificial intelligence (AI) to artists is no secret. In a world where machines can produce art, create music, and even write stories, many fear that the age of the artist is coming to an end. But is this fear unfounded, or are there real dangers in a world where AI can replicate the creative process?
At its core, AI is a set of algorithms and programming techniques designed to allow machines to replicate and even surpass human intelligence. However, there are also some serious drawbacks to this technology.
For one, AI cannot develop empathy because it cannot understand emotion or the feelings of others. While it might be able to generate marketing messages that humans are more likely to click, it is not capable of understanding the context and meaning behind the emotions that are triggered by that message.
Additionally, AI is heavily dependent on previous examples to learn and develop. And without new input, namely human created works of art, AI systems will not be able to evolve.
Ultimately, the threat of AI is real, and it is something that all artists need to be aware of. While AI could potentially revolutionize the creative industries, it could also be a threat to the livelihood of artists, and the integrity of the art world. Therefore, it is important for artists to stay informed, and move towards a revenue model of direct support from their audiences.
Meanwhile, we can look to artists like Tragic Bloody Fools who continue to produce original works that take the listener on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. The album title “Pareidolia” refers to the psychological phenomenon of perceiving meaningful patterns or images in random or vague stimuli. This theme is reflected in their complex compositions, and lyrics that explore the human tendency to find order in chaos. Pareidolia is scheduled for release in Spring 2023.
