"Hi Stephen, I would partially disagree with this quote- "The true artist will let his wife starve, his children go barefoot, his mother drudge for his living at seventy, sooner than work at anything but his art." I have seen some artists…"

"Hi Harold, Thank you for your comment. I understand you. But I am not sure the writer's block can have much to do with how good you are. Maybe very experienced and professional composers get writer's block less frequently than the…"

"Hi definitely will. Actually I contacted them (they have a chatbox on their website) and the person replied within 2 seconds. I asked when we can actually try the platform and they said on January 7th 2019 the platform will be open to public. I…"

"Hi Harold, I listened to your Trio so I know that you are a serious composer and I understand your reaction to AI composition which I think is probably a common reaction among serious composers.  You've made careful artistic choices with…"

"I'm hoping you will keep us posted on your trial of this software.  Even better would be a sample?"

"I am having difficulty understanding why someone would write music and divorce themselves from their feelings about it so that it could be written faster. And why music for TV or movies is considered 2nd class. If we are going to write music, I…"

"Hey Ashley , the AIVA website has a free demo mode that allows you to use their site to generate and download 3 tracks per month for non-commercial use.  If you like the service you can pay for full usage rights.  Why not try…"

"As Logan Pearsall Smith (1865-1946) said: The notion of making money by popular work, and then retiring to do good work on the proceeds, is the most familiar of all the devil's traps for artists. Wherein lies the distinction between composing…"

"Hi Tomothy, Thank you for getting back to me and for your points which I find very interesting. When I want to make music for myself only and I do not need a director to judge whether what I composed is the best fit for the project or no,…"

"Hi Ingo, To be honest I thought exactly the same when I first checked their website, but actually I found out that AIVA does cooperate with musicians and they claim that their scores are brought to life by humans (I don't remember if I saw…"

"Thank you Colin for getting back to me. I also see the AI as a tool and a software but I don't see it as my competitor. However, I think the TV ads for example will still be using human composers because they still need a real…"

"Ashley, I believe Colin stated the same viewpoint as myself. We are simply saying it in different ways. Music as an art can  be a product as well which sometimes has unfortunate effects to the end result. In making music as strictly an art,…"
