In a recent interview with Kerrang! Radio, Corey Taylor shared that he feels AI is a replacement for talent and that his thoughts are an extension of what he thinks about programs like ProTools and Autotune.
In Taylor‘s words:
I don’t care for any of that crap, dude, to be honest. I don’t know what people are trying to prove. Are they trying to prove that computers can do things just as good as people? Because if so, then what’s the point?
It’s an even worse example of technology taking over for talent than what I’ve been ranting about for years with ProTools and tuning and using the same sounds. And people keep going, ‘Oh, isn’t it cool?’ I’m, like, no, it’s not cool. What are you — out of your mind?
What? Suddenly now we have no talent? The only thing that we’re gonna get that sounds cool and new is from something that doesn’t even exist? Screw you, man!
Every time people get stoked in front of me about AI, I go, ‘You’re not talking to the right person. You need to go over that way and talk to a dipshit who doesn’t care.’ ‘Cause I hate it. I can’t stand it.
