Computer Generated Songs- “These Kids Today and Their Loud Music”

At first thought, using a computer to continue to write works of the “Great Lost Artists” is an amazing concept. Who wouldn’t want to hear one more Beatles’ song.  There are surely countless applications where you would want to use this music. However, for me there is something missing, there is that depth of soul and passion within the tunes. Music should make you feel something. A great artist will make the hair on you arm stand up, take you to a memory you long forgot, or take you to a place you have yet to imagine.

These tunes are little too chaotic for me to instill that sensation. It sounds more like several tracks all muddled together. What’s your opinion?
