I just saw a review of artificial composing software. In short: with this software, the user can select the music genre, mood, the sections build-up, rhythmic activity etc. Next to these selections, the user can make his/her own adjustments/preferences. Although in my opinion the "compositions" sounded weird and very artificial indeed, I think it is a scary development. I mean what about 10 or 20 years from now?
I think that real composers, regardless of their level, would cringe by the very thought of using this kind of software. Even using it as a helping tool, e.g. "inspiration" or "efficiency", I would feel myself like a big faker. Personally, when I say I have written or composed a piece of music, this means that I have written every single note you hear.
I do use, like probably most of you, music notation software and production software (virtual instruments, recording etc).
What are your thoughts regarding these developments?
