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.

Comments

  1. And people blame me for the Classic Hits by Microsoft Songsmith, conveniently ignoring that it’s all created by the computer.

  2. 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.
