Feedback on Finished songs / Re: Janey
« Last post by moraamarolaloba on Yesterday at 08:02:50 PM »
Hola!!!
I enjoy reading your lyrics, they are like movies with a main actor, in this case Janey... I love the dance paragraph (and more other lines)... it is a beautiful but overwhelming scene in a way.

Clowns know many things about human miseries that is why they protect themselves behind the laughter they put in our mouths.

Janey, Janey, Janey

I heard a rumor you folded from the strain
But I know you, you're on the slow train,
sittin' in the lounge car with a dangerous smile;
looks like things gonna be smooth for a while

And I'm out here on the outskirts
of this torn down town
way out on the outskirts of town

You never stop running, nobody has a clue,
or the damage those green eyes can do.
You looked around, found you an answer,
inside yourself you became a silent dancer.

Dance around the fires
Dance beyond the wires
Dance and dance alone
Where you dance is home

I caught you when you were still green,
you waltzed right onto a real bad scene;
now you've got answers, just like a clown
you don't allow anything to get you down.

Angels never have to say a thing
just a quiet shake of their wing,
they tell me heaven is not so far away,
seems I been there and I could not stay.

Dance around the fires
Dance beyond the wires
Dance and dance alone
Where you dance is home.

Children's eyes hold a choice,
way out on the outskirts of town,
your memory now is a voice
way out on the outskirts of town.

Way out on the outskirts of town
mmm...mmm...mm-mmm
way out on the outskirts of town.

A timely piece considering the number and intensity of wars going on now.  I like how melodic this is - especially the vocals.

Sometimes I don't want to remember.  The vocal and mix on this are balanced and clean - it's rough just like some memories.

@Dorian   :) No problem, I did not take offence at all and indeed really appreciate you taking the time to give your views, both on the music and more broadly on the technology. I would love to hear from others both on the specific music I posted as well as the more general topic of the use of AI in music creation. (As I said, I have some views of my own, but I am very curious to hear from others.)

Best wishes, Kevin

@kevysc
Just to be clear: my response was in no way intended to make you feel sorry, awkward or sad or anything. You truly make awesome music and your reponses are always nice and gentle. You asked an opinion on the technology itself and these are my thoughts.

Greetings, Dorian

@Dorian Although i share some of your concerns, I am perhaps more optimistic about how this will turn out :) At any rate, I will hold off making further comments until hear from some others on the forum.

Cheers, Kevin

Love the video and the song.The sexy voice reminds me of a singer called Eartha Kitt
from quite a while ago. Can't pretend I understand the lyrics
but they suit the dreamy backing perfectly. Great production.

Hola @calafinestrat

Thank you so much! Lyrics? all lyrics have the mystery of who made them and why.

See you!

@kevysc  Okay you want thoughts. They are dark, for I genuinely feel sad about this. Human creativity replaced by big company machines. Yuk. Why replace that what makes us human? What’s next? My totally non-creative neighbour (with all respect for their other talents) telling me he’s musical because he knows how to push two buttons? Artists, song writers, mixing engineers and musicians being replaced, going out of work? The well earned money they used to make going to the big tech companies from now on? I’m afraid creative and musical minds will soon be recognised even less by the mojority. People will frown or laugh, because the machine can do it "better".

I know, they said the same thing with the rise of electronic music, but at least synths and such are used as a tool by creative minds, or the music that came from it was non-presumptuous. This is of a whole different level. This is replacing musicians, turning us all into consumers. Same with AI generated art.

Doesn’t mean i did not enjoy the result that the machine created for you. If you think of it, it's an epic piece of technology. But it comes with a prize. As a contrast, I do applaud AI for diagnosis of patients, or to predict economic outcomes and such.

Please dear Kevin, don’t sell your soul to this dark path. We have cookies as well  8)
Hm, shouldn't the forum block AI created content? I'm sure this will become a problem pretty soon. If we can stop it at all...

@Dorian  @moraamarolaloba  Ok, I have to admit it, the music was generated exclusively by AI (using Udio)! I added my own vocals, but I wanted to see what was possible with very little effort. I must admit, I was blown away by what it can produce.

Have others played around with this technology yet? Any thoughts / comments?

Thanks, Kevin
