robots only work in patterns, music is based off creativity and feeling. a robot has none of them

Music is created with soul - I.e organic inspiration and emotion. Sometimes it is not calculated and methodical like machines.

Robots may create our melodies someday, and voice synthesis will get better. There is AI which can write articles for newspapers. There will always be a demand for real humans though, as people are constantly looking for new stars/artists to relate to and form fanbases around. AI artists will become common, but it seems they will coexist rather than replace.

Yeah most people won't be fond of robotic melodies, or perhaps only in the beginning? Today's pop music is very generic tbh. It feels like anyone could make it.
