This week, Mike chats with Amper Music CEO and Co-Founder Drew Silverstein. Amper Music is at the leading edge of the artificial intelligence revolution in music.
Amper’s AI is designed to instantly produce royalty-free production music that matches the length, genre, and mood that the user dictates, while also allowing the user to collaborate with Amper as if they’re sitting in the studio with a composer. Frankly, the results are pretty impressive, and Amper is just one of many applications that are using AI to either assist creators or, depending on your perspective, replace them.
“Our goal is to empower anyone around the world to express themselves creatively through music regardless of their background, expertise, or access to resources. As we become successful at that goal, it means that Amper should be involved in the creation and collaboration of every piece of music around the world,” Silverstein says in this conversation, while insisting that AI-made music will eventually be indistinguishable from human-made music. What does this mean for musicians and the music industry?
This conversation is a preview of an upcoming article in Canadian Musician magazine in which we address these questions.
Before the interview, Mike talks about a new report from Citigroup that has the industry talking and validates musicians’ concerns about getting their fair share of the money.

Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation? How far should politicians be allowed to intervene in court cases? To monitor these issues as closely as we have in the past we need your support, so please consider donating to The Climax News Room.
