The Future of Music is Here!

For those of you who've been living underground for the past few months, Microsoft Songsmith is a program that lets you sing into the computer and it will automatically compose music to accompany you. This demonstration is probably better than Microsoft's own commercial. People have started running various classic songs through Songsmith just to see what it would come up with. The results are often hilarious.

"Intergalactic" by the Beastie Boys
"White Wedding" by Billy Idol
"Tom Sawyer" by Rush
"Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zepellin

My gods,that is so, so wrong. And you can hear that the machine tends to 'reward' predictability. The more you conform to its assumptions of wher you will go next, the better it fits. If you are too original then it cannot keep up.

And thank you for the links so we could bear witness to this evil.
