Byta & MatchTune Present:

Ethical AI in Music Production: a free workshop for music creators, their teams and all creatives!

Featuring: Virginie Berger, Thomas Guillaud, Ben Porter, Moderated by Marc Brown

Join Us for a Webinar on the Ethical Use of AI in Music Creation

Are you ready to dive into the future of music creation? Join us on July 3rd, 2024, at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST for an eye-opening webinar hosted in collaboration with MatchTune, where we explore the profound impact of artificial intelligence on the music industry.

Get ready for a groundbreaking discussion; a transformative exploration into the ethical use of AI in music creation!

In a world where AI can compose, produce, and even perform music, we stand at a pivotal crossroads. The questions we face are monumental: How do we maintain transparency in AI’s role in music? What are the intellectual property challenges with AI-generated tunes? And crucially, how do we ensure that artists are fairly compensated?

Join us as we dive deep into these pressing issues. Together, we’ll draft a new blueprint for AI in music – establishing robust principles that uphold responsible innovation while cherishing the indispensable human essence of artistry. Our mission? To make sure AI amplifies creativity, reinforcing rather than replacing the artist’s irreplaceable spark.

This is your invitation to help sculpt the future soundscape of the music industry. Don’t miss this chance to engage with top industry mavens and visionary thinkers. Let’s shape a future where technology harmonizes with human creativity!
