Maurizio Pollini’s Chopin Etudes Astonish 50 Years Later

Why did we have had to wait over fifty years for this unique recording? Maurizio Pollini withheld his permission for his first complete recording of the Chopin Etudes Opp. 10 & 25 to be released. While the legendary DG recording from the 1970s has long been acknowledged as one of the finest versions of the Chopin Etudes, the previously unissued version from Abbey Road Studios in 1960 - characterised by a lighter touch and greater musical freedom – is now available on Testament label.

-I ordered my artificial intelligence robot to read it. For the moment I´m preoccupied of learning and making quite common human music. And that's just enough  Grin

That's quite a good attitude, the more we do that the less risk of getting surpassed by robots  Grin

David Cope has extended similar artificial intelligence code to imitate many styles of composers of the past; some of his results are on YouTube.

I suggest you don't really need artificial intelligence to write code to compose music which is in some sense meaningful to human ears. These were generated by a simple Basic program of a few dozen lines:

I don't know about you people but, for me, imitating composers of the past is a pointless exercise by either a human or a computer program. Heuristic algorithms, once they get big enough, start generating surprise and personality of their own, because the meaning of music is imposed by the listening mind no matter what or who created it. Although it was fun, I stopped fiddling with this sort of thing because I want my psyche, soul, consciousness, whatever you like to call it, to be mapped onto abstract piano sound in the spontaneous present. I want to be part of it, both mentally and haptically, and an algorithm cannot do that for me.

It is an interesting subject though, Douglas Hofstadter made some interesting observations about it in his "Godel, Escher, Bach".

I keep thinking of Band in a Box when I see this thread.

DeepMind's WaveNet has produced some interesting music by generating raw sound waves;
