Now that it’s fall, I’m ramping up for the second half of my AI Music Marketing Season! In this episode, I sat down with extraordinary visual artist, musician, and metaverse expert Carrie Able, to discuss the fascinating intersection of AI, art, and the future of music.
Throughout the episode, Carrie shares insightful perspectives on the unique art that we all know and love (like the art you can visit in museums) and how AI falls short in replicating its depth and creativity. She also delves into her exciting journey of creating standalone music that inspires art.
We discuss the potential risks and benefits of AI in the art industry. Carrie emphasizes the need for regulation and consent in using people’s data and imagery for training AI systems.
We cover inspiring examples of breaking genre boundaries, such as the Barbie movie, which exemplifies that AI is not yet capable of replicating the creative spark that comes from human imagination.
She shares her personal journey as an artist, from being an apprentice to a portrait painter at a young age to embracing tech-related art and becoming an artist in residence at a VR studio.
Then she swings into her collaboration and the exciting future possibilities of augmented reality and VR technology. This technology is important to pay attention to because Carrie thinks it could revolutionize the way we experience art and music, similar to how the iPhone revolutionized the industry.
Carrie sheds light on the importance of artists owning their own data, creativity, and online assets in virtual worlds, emphasizing the potential of Web 3.0, crypto NFTs, and the Metaverse for artists.
Overall, this episode is a treasure trove of insights and ideas that will leave you excited about the future of music, art, and technology.
