The rise of AI in music; a bot DJ and a song produced by artificial intelligence. The Guardian wrote a piece on human curation and whether it can undo the algorithm (My 2 cents: it’s not the right question to ask), iHeartRadio will launch not one but two paid on-demand services, Katy Perry takes off clothes in commercial urging people to vote and 49% of Rolling Stone sold to BandLab.
Meanwhile nobody seems to want to buy Tidal and Spotify is about to buy Soundcloud? Armin van Buuren (audio)guides you through the Van Gogh Museum, talking about old stuff: listen to the first music ever recorded on a computer. And from Japan: Babymetal!
Jim Jarmusch is releasing a documentary about rock ‘n’ roll legends Iggy And The Stooges, there’s an app to create mixtapes from Spotify music and Tele 2 and Lil Kleine introduce SnapTickets. Bon Iver organises listening parties across the world for release of his new album, Beyonce becomes a tech investor, YouTube hires ex-Def Jam boss, MTV hires A$AP Rocky and Pusha-T helps change art education through adidas originals.
