"Is AI taking over?" -- AKA my second blog post

Behold, the absolute strangest performance I have ever done - PLAYING WITH ROBOTS! Last summer in China, in Nanjing. The trip itself was awesome (I just love traveling with my band so much), although also somewhat strange, and collaborating with those Chinese musicians is always a unique and very rewarding experience. Also, unfortunately the robots weren't actually playing. But they sure were dancing! To the song we were playing live haha. Whose idea was that?! Genius.

Last night Aaron and I watched the Netflix documentary "The Social Dilemma". Not a very pleasant watch let me tell you, but highly informative! I think it could be appreciated by all sides of the political spectra. It saddens me though that people who tend to believe in conspiracy theories and such probably will have a hard time accepting this information. But still, I believe in the general intelligens and potential of the human race.. as a general rule. Anything is possible.


The movie kind of confirmed the looming feeling that I've had the past maybe 8 months that I really do not want to be a part of that. Reading about what the algorithms do make me sad. And as a musician it's so easy to get stuck in the hamster wheel race - trying to break through a system that is actually designed to make you feel worse. I won't play that game! BUT. What I'm getting to is that it also confirmed my feeling of wanting to have a blog again, on my own platform! Because, let's face it, I've always enjoyed sharing things online. But this way I am not trying to break through some system that hurts me. I can just share, and the people that want to take part of it are able to do so without any AI interference (or maybe "they've" already taken over our brains, we'd never know).


Like and comment and share on FB! Jk. but yeah there's a comment section here but unfortunately you have to make an account (you can come up with something ridiculous though, I don't think I'd be able to see the information). Ok thanks stay safe y'all! <3
