Where we are
On-demand music befitting one’s mood is a profitable feature for streaming providers. Now, apps are taking algorithms one note further and creating customized music and meditation soundtracks to increase people’s mood and mental state.
Where we’re going
Music therapy will become mainstream as more apps open up access to scientifically based sound healing. Ambient music is setting the tone for other genres of AI music and art to extend into the cultural milieu.
How to think about it
Music composed of ambient noises and musical notes doesn’t rely on an artist connecting with a listener. Look for other areas of art that aren’t personality driven and could consequently be disrupted by AI.
