Semi-Serious Question: Is It My Music or Bram’s?
The other day, AUM finally clicked for me and I started to understand the value of a “non-DAW” in my workflow.
However, now I’ve got a half dozen or so tracks that I really enjoy listening to, but for which I provided relatively little actual input. I set up the sounds, sure, but my only melodic contributions were picking the key and assigning Rozeta’s Mutate probabilities.
For the record, I’m not planning on touting these tracks around or using them to boost my reputation as an “artistic genius.” The fact is, I just like the way they sound. I might send some to my friend for background use in his podcast and I might create a separate album on my Bandcamp page, but I don’t stand to make a dime.
Nonetheless, it’s a strange feeling. At what point do I stop being a musician and become a supervisor? For those of you with more experience working on generated music, how do you handle this?
Also, many thanks to Bram Bos for EVERYTHING.
