“It’s something fascinating”: the Justice duo in favor of the use of AI in music

A “fascinating” tool. The group Justice spoke on France Inter to talk about their highly anticipated album, Hyperdrama, scheduled for April 26. Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay, two-time Grammy Award winners, took the opportunity to discuss artificial intelligence, a few days after 200 artists signed a letter denouncing its use in music.

“Artificial intelligence is something fascinating that opens up incredible perspectives,” Gaspard Augé immediately decides. The first half of the duo isn't sure if the use of AIs in music is "that bad." He doesn't think so anyway. “The public in general has no problem with listening to songs from dead people or fake songs from living people,” he continues. And it’s true, it’s not the fans who oppose the arrival of AI but rather the artists. The music industry more generally.

Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Angèle, Nekfeu, Gloria Gaynor... Since this summer, social networks have been flooded with fake covers generated by AI in which the artists' fake voices sound exactly like the real ones. All this even though they have never performed the title in question. “We can reproduce the voice of Elvis Presley. Is it really that interesting to have a song written by a computer with your voice?, the duo asks. It will be interesting for two weeks and then people will move on.”

Last week, more than 200 artists, most of them internationally renowned, called for the protection of musical creation in the face of this new threat. But for the electronic music duo, AIs are no problem. “World pop music is already made by machines. The voice is the last element that is not electronic,” continue the two artists.

Justice's new album, in stores from April 26, is eagerly awaited, particularly in the United States. After the announcement of the record and their participation in Coachella on April 12 and 19, Billboard magazine was quick to rewind their career. “Justice has been very discreet since its Grammy,” he writes about the prestigious American trophy won in 2019, the second after that of 2009. “The duo's first feat of arms was their single D.A.N.C.E., immediately iconic, in their inaugural album that changed the landscape in 2007,” continues the magazine.

Their last studio album, Woman, dates back to 2016. Since then, only Gaspard Augé has produced music, offering a solo breakout in 2021 with the album Escapades. After eight years of absence, the duo is making their comeback. The two Frenchmen will then embark on an XXL tour, during which they will make a detour to the Parisian festival We Love Green on June 1 and the Accor Arena on December 17 and 18. Seats, in categories one and two, are still available for sale on Ticketmaster.
