Beyond the realm of individual creators, the influence of AI in music extends to live performances as well. At an artificial intelligence conference in Bengaluru, the renowned folk music band Swarathma took the stage to perform a composition authored by ChatGPT. This captivating performance not only showcased the band's talent but also highlighted the potential of AI to disrupt traditional music-making processes.

An article by Bloomberg in April delved into the transformative impact of AI technology on the music industry. It raised critical questions about copyright, creativity, and the evolving landscape of music production. While acknowledging the potential for AI to revolutionize music creation, the article emphasized the importance of striking a balance between AI and human creativity. The evolving synergy between artificial intelligence and the music industry prompts contemplation about the future trajectory of this dynamic relationship.
