The traditional banister houses turn into stages where people sing and feel less lonely. Today are you “Mr Volare”?

In locked-down Milan, traditional banister houses turn into stages to sing and feel less lonely. But what if artists could perform for real?

For a few days now in Milan, noon and 6pm have been the time for applauding, toasting from window to window, playing ‘music’ on pots and pans, or collectively singing Nel Blu dipinto di Blu, the song that the world knows as Volare, winner of two Grammys and performed by artists like Barry White, David Bowie, Andrea Bocelli, Frank Sinatra, Frank Zappa, Gipsy King, Dean Martin, and Pavarotti.

Just imagine if Domenico Modugno, who wrote the piece, appeared for real.

Thanks to the latest applications of AI to creativity and entertainment, customized house concerts will soon be possible.

Producing such shows is undoubtedly over-expensive still, and legal aspects have not been totally defined yet, but numerous stars have already been ‘brought back to life’ as sophisticated holograms. Following Maria Callas, Roy Orbison and Frank Zappa, now Whitney Houston, who passed away in 2012, is also on a tour that started last January 23 in Mexico.

Artist missing? Let’s create one!

Just like Space 150, a creative studio based in the United States. By using machine learning, a type of AI that enables computers to learn without being specifically programmed to do so, all calculators were fed with songs by Travis Scott, an American rapper whose single Highest in the Room, released in October 2019, hit a record 3,94 million streamings on Spotify US in the first release week.

Named “TravisBott”, the machine produced a piece titled Jack Park Canny Dope Man

The lyrics are pretty nonsense, but it is surely worth a spot in your playlist.
