Microsoft Songsmith – Please Make the Bad Noise Stop

Let me start by saying this: This music thankfully did not come from inside my brain. This is what happens when you put Sting through Microsoft Songsmith.

Any questions?

Yes, everyone might have a song in their heart, but let’s avoid using Songsmith to extract it. Some things are better left unsung.

  1. Music created by computer is not by definition bad – the computer is a tool, and what we need are better algorithmic composition tools to use its power. As a comment on the ‘piano inside my head’ title, by the way, I find the piano is more ‘inside my fingers’ – I often find my fingers moving to create imaginary pieces that are ever-present, subliminally.
