we get what we're willing to pay for

Shazam started it.

Then “ability to recognize” led to algorithm’s that can “predict”.

Pandora sifts through 450 pieces of information about the sound of a recording before it ever plays it.

Creation is being reduced to following data.

Songwriters today know which sounds will draw the greatest number of followers and likes.

So they follow the algorithm to micropayments and call it art.

If you think the autotuned stuff we call “music” today was borne from computer data 
instead of the heart and soul of a true artist...

you’d be right.
