Dana Gillespie Advances to the Finals of "Una Voce Per San Marino" with "The Last Polar Bear" 

London, February 19, 2024 – Today, San Marino RTV confirmed that British blues singer Dana Gillespie is one of eight "established artists" to have qualified for the finals of "Una Voce Per San Marino", which is San Marino’s format for the selection of its song for Eurovision 2024. Dana will compete with the song "The Last Polar Bear". The Journey of "The Last Polar Bear" The genesis of "The Last Polar Bear" can be traced back to the autumn of 2023 when Casperaki launched a groundbreaking initiative inviting the public to collaborate with its AI chatbots to craft original draft songs for consideration by "Una Voce per San Marino". Out of numerous entries, ten were handpicked and brought to a dedicated songwriting camp in London for further development. This camp, hosted at The Qube studios from January 19-21, brought together a group of promising young talents from Germany and the UK, who were tasked with picking the most promising candidates and evolving them into potential hits. Dana, who had been collaborating with Sieng Van Tran, a tech entrepreneur, on pioneering uses of technology in music, was invited to explore Casperaki at an AI presentation of ten songs at the Temple of Art and Music, a London music venue. There, she discovered "The Last Polar Bear." Moved by its message, Dana was instantly drawn to the song. Shortly afterward, while on tour in Vienna, she refined and recorded her vocals for the song on an iPhone. Her haunting vocals transformed the song into a powerful environmental anthem. This impromptu version, swiftly assembled over a few days, was uploaded to YouTube (, where it garnered overwhelmingly positive feedback from global fans. This wave of support ultimately convinced the jury of "Una Voce per San Marino" to select "The Last Polar Bear" for the final stage of the competition. Mathias Strasser, founder and CEO of Casperaki, said, “Ultimately, there can be only one winner, and I want to congratulate Dana for having captivated the hearts and minds of San Marino’s jury. At the same time, I want to give a shout-out to Meg Birch, Nicole Silva, and Marie Wegener, who deserve huge respect for having joined Casperaki on this experiment of fusing AI with human creativity. My team and I are absolutely certain that the world will hear a lot more from these incredibly gifted artists very soon.” About Dana Gillespie Dana Gillespie has been a recording artist since 1964 and just finished making her 74th album. Not only is she a singer, but she is also a prolific songwriter and record producer. She was the original Mary Magdalene in the London stage production of "Jesus Christ Superstar" and has performed in many musicals and films throughout her career. David Bowie wrote "Andy Warhol" for her, and he performed as a backing vocalist on the track for her album. In return, she provided backing vocals on his "Ziggy Stardust" album. Dana is still touring globally with the London Blues Band and the Joachim Paden Trio. Additionally, she was a DJ for a radio station in Vienna, Austria, for eleven years, promoting world music and blues. She has made ten albums in Sanskrit and has an interest in Indian culture.

Grimes Embraces AI in Music, Invites Musicians to Clone Her Voice and "Kill Copyright.

Canadian musician Grimes has invited fellow artists to clone her voice using artificial intelligence (AI) for their new songs, offering to split 50% of the royalties on successful tracks. This groundbreaking move comes as the music industry is grappling with AI-generated songs trained on artists' voices, raising questions about copyright law and the future of art.

Last week, Universal Music petitioned streaming services to remove a deep-faked song featuring vocals from Drake and The Weeknd. Universal claimed that AI-generated music violates copyright law. However, this issue has yet to be tested in court, leaving AI-generated art in a legal grey area. The US Copyright Office has ruled that AI art, including music, cannot be copyrighted, but the question remains whether art created by humans with AI elements can be.

Grimes is enthusiastic about open-sourcing art and "killing copyright." She is already working on a program to simulate her voice and may release a capella tracks for fans to use. After her announcement, fans quickly shared links to their own songs featuring Grimes' vocals. The musician is eager to be a "guinea pig" for AI technology in music and has expressed her belief in AI's creative potential.

Despite her enthusiasm, Grimes acknowledges that she may have to take down songs with extremely toxic lyrics, even though she has chosen not to copyright her name and likeness. This raises further questions about the legality of such actions.

Grimes' work has long explored the relationship between humans and machines. Songs like "We Appreciate Power" and "Flesh Without Blood" delve into AI's ethical quandaries. In 2020, she collaborated with Endel to create an AI-generated lullaby for her child with Elon Musk, X Æ A-12.

Grimes' bold stance on AI in music and open-sourcing art may revolutionize the industry. As technology advances, the relationship between artists, AI, and copyright law will continue to evolve, leading to new creative avenues and collaborations like the one suggested by Twitter user Tim S: "How about Dana's songs with Grimes' voice? Or duet?"

"Grimes Ủng hộ AI trong Âm nhạc, Mời các Nghệ sĩ Nhân bản Giọng hát của mình và "Tiêu diệt Bản quyền". Nghệ sĩ người Canada Grimes đã mời các nghệ sĩ khác nhân bản giọng hát của cô bằng trí tuệ nhân tạo (AI) cho các bài hát mới của họ, đề nghị chia sẻ 50% tiền bản quyền cho các bài hát thành công. Động thái đột phá này xuất hiện khi ngành công nghiệp âm nhạc đang đối mặt với các bài hát do AI tạo ra được huấn luyện trên giọng hát của các nghệ sĩ, đặt ra câu hỏi về luật bản quyền và tương lai của nghệ thuật.

Tuần trước, Universal Music đã yêu cầu các dịch vụ streaming gỡ bỏ một bài hát deep-fake có giọng hát của Drake và The Weeknd. Universal khẳng định rằng âm nhạc do AI tạo ra vi phạm luật bản quyền. Tuy nhiên, vấn đề này chưa được kiểm chứng tại tòa án, khiến nghệ thuật do AI tạo ra rơi vào một khu vực pháp lý mời hồi. Cục Bản quyền Hoa Kỳ đã phán quyết rằng nghệ thuật AI, bao gồm âm nhạc, không thể được bảo hộ bản quyền, nhưng câu hỏi vẫn còn là liệu nghệ thuật được con người tạo ra với các yếu tố AI có thể được bảo hộ không.

Grimes rất hào hứng với việc mở mã nguồn nghệ thuật và "tiêu diệt bản quyền." Cô đã làm việc trên một chương trình để mô phỏng giọng hát của mình và có thể sẽ phát hành các bài hát a capella cho người hâm mộ sử dụng. Sau thông báo của cô, người hâm mộ nhanh chóng chia sẻ các liên kết đến các bài hát của họ có giọng hát của Grimes. Nghệ sĩ này rất háo hức trở thành "con chuột" cho công nghệ AI trong âm nhạc và đã bày tỏ niềm tin vào tiềm năng sáng tạo của AI.

Mặc dù rất hào hứng, Grimes thừa nhận rằng cô có thể phải gỡ bỏ các bài hát có lời lẽ cực kỳ độc h

ại, mặc dù cô đã chọn không bảo hộ bản quyền tên và hình ảnh của mình. Điều này đặt ra thêm nhiều câu hỏi về tính hợp pháp của những hành động như vậy.

Công việc của Grimes đã từ lâu khám phá mối quan hệ giữa con người và máy móc. Các bài hát như "We Appreciate Power" và "Flesh Without Blood" thảo luận về những mâu thuẫn đạo đức của AI. Năm 2020, cô đã hợp tác với Endel để tạo ra một bản ru do AI tạo ra cho đứa con của cô với Elon Musk, X Æ A-12.

Quan điểm dũng cảm của Grimes về AI trong âm nhạc và mở mã nguồn nghệ thuật có thể cách mạng hóa ngành công nghiệp. Khi công nghệ tiếp tục phát triển, mối quan hệ giữa các nghệ sĩ, AI, và luật bản quyền sẽ tiếp tục biến đổi, dẫn đến các con đường sáng tạo và hợp tác mới như đề nghị của người dùng Twitter Tim S: "Còn về các bài hát của Dana với giọng hát của Grimes? Hoặc song ca?"

"Grimes embrasse l'IA dans la musique, invite les musiciens à cloner sa voix et à "tuer les droits d'auteur". La musicienne canadienne Grimes a invité d'autres artistes à cloner sa voix à l'aide de l'intelligence artificielle (IA) pour leurs nouvelles chansons, proposant de partager 50% des royalties sur les morceaux réussis. Cette démarche innovante intervient alors que l'industrie de la musique est confrontée à des chansons générées par l'IA basées sur les voix des artistes, soulevant des questions sur le droit d'auteur et l'avenir de l'art.

La semaine dernière, Universal Music a demandé aux services de streaming de retirer une chanson deep-fake mettant en vedette les voix de Drake et The Weeknd. Universal a affirmé que la musique générée par l'IA viole le droit d'auteur. Cependant, cette question n'a pas encore été testée devant les tribunaux, laissant l'art généré par l'IA dans une zone grise légale. Le Bureau américain des droits d'auteur a statué que l'art créé par l'IA, y compris la musique, ne peut pas être protégé par le droit d'auteur, mais la question demeure quant à savoir si l'art créé par des humains avec des éléments d'IA peut l'être.

Grimes est enthousiaste à l'idée d'ouvrir le code source de l'art et de "tuer les droits d'auteur". Elle travaille déjà sur un programme pour simuler sa voix et pourrait sortir des morceaux a cappella pour que ses fans puissent les utiliser. Après son annonce, les fans ont rapidement partagé des liens vers leurs propres chansons mettant en vedette la voix de Grimes. La musicienne est impatiente d'être un "cobaye" pour la technologie de l'IA dans la musique et a exprimé sa foi dans le potentiel créatif de l'IA.

Malgré son enthousiasme, Grimes reconnaît qu'elle pourrait devoir supprimer des chansons avec des paroles extrêmement toxiques, même si elle a choisi de ne pas protéger son nom et son image par le droit d'auteur. Cela soulève d'autres questions sur la légalité de telles actions.

L'œuvre de Grimes a longtemps exploré la relation entre les humains et les machines. Des chansons comme "We Appreciate Power" et "Flesh Without Blood" s'interrogent sur les dilemmes éthiques de l'IA.

La position audacieuse de Grimes sur l'IA dans la musique et l'ouverture du code source de l'art pourrait révolutionner l'industrie. Avec l'avancée de la technologie, la relation entre les artistes, l'IA et le droit d'auteur continuera d'évoluer, ouvrant de nouvelles voies créatives et collaborations comme celle suggérée par l'utilisateur Twitter Tim S : "Que diriez-vous des chansons de Dana avec la voix de Grimes ?

"Grimes umarmt KI in der Musik, lädt Musiker ein, ihre Stimme zu klonen und das "Urheberrecht zu töten". Die kanadische Musikerin Grimes hat andere Künstler eingeladen, ihre Stimme mit Hilfe von künstlicher Intelligenz (KI) für ihre neuen Songs zu klonen und bietet an, 50% der Tantiemen für erfolgreiche Tracks zu teilen. Dieser bahnbrechende Schritt erfolgt zu einem Zeitpunkt, an dem die Musikindustrie mit KI-generierten Songs konfrontiert ist, die auf den Stimmen von Künstlern basieren, und wirft Fragen zum Urheberrecht und zur Zukunft der Kunst auf.

Letzte Woche forderte Universal Music Streaming-Dienste auf, einen Deepfake-Song mit den Stimmen von Drake und The Weeknd zu entfernen. Universal behauptete, dass KI-generierte Musik das Urheberrecht verletzt. Diese Frage wurde jedoch noch nicht vor Gericht geprüft, was KI-generierte Kunst in eine rechtliche Grauzone bringt. Das US Copyright Office hat entschieden, dass KI-Kunst, einschließlich Musik, nicht urheberrechtlich geschützt werden kann, aber es bleibt die Frage, ob Kunst, die von Menschen mit KI-Elementen geschaffen wurde, geschützt werden kann.

Grimes ist begeistert von Open-Source-Kunst und der "Abschaffung des Urheberrechts". Sie arbeitet bereits an einem Programm zur Simulation ihrer Stimme und könnte a cappella Tracks für Fans zur Nutzung veröffentlichen. Nach ihrer Ankündigung teilten Fans schnell Links zu ihren eigenen Songs mit Grimes' Stimme. Die Musikerin ist gespannt darauf, ein "Versuchskaninchen" für KI-Technologie in der Musik zu sein und hat ihren Glauben an das kreative Potenzial der KI zum Ausdruck gebracht.

Trotz ihrer Begeisterung räumt Grimes ein, dass sie gezwungen sein könnte, Songs mit extrem toxischen Texten zu entfernen, obwohl sie sich entschieden hat, ihren Namen und ihr Bild nicht urheberrechtlich schützen zu lassen. Dies wirft weitere Fragen zur Legalität solcher Aktionen auf.

Grimes' Arbeit hat lange das Verhältnis zwischen Menschen und Maschinen erforscht. Songs wie "We Appreciate Power" und "Flesh Without Blood" tauchen in die ethischen Dilemmata der KI ein. Im Jahr 2020 kollaborierte sie mit Endel, um ein KI-generiertes Schlaflied für ihr Kind mit Elon Musk, X Æ A-12, zu kreieren.

Grimes' mutige Haltung zur KI in der Musik und zur Open-Source-Kunst könnte die Branche revolutionieren. Mit dem Fortschreiten der Technologie wird das Verhältnis zwischen Künstlern, KI und Urheberrecht weiterentwickeln, was zu neuen kreativen Wegen und Kollaborationen führt, wie sie vom Twitter-Nutzer Tim S vorgeschlagen wurden: "Wie wäre es mit Danas Songs mit Grimes' Stimme? Oder ein Duett?"

上周,环球音乐向流媒体服务提出申请,要求删除一首深度伪造的歌曲,该歌曲中包含Drake和The Weeknd的歌声。环球声称,AI生成的音乐侵犯了版权法。然而,这个问题尚未在法庭上进行测试,使AI生成的艺术处于法律灰色地带。美国版权局已裁定,包括音乐在内的AI艺术不能被版权保护,但仍然存在一个问题,即人类用AI元素创作的艺术是否可以被保护。



Grimes的作品长期以来都在探索人与机器之间的关系。像"We Appreciate Power"和"Flesh Without Blood"这样的歌曲深入探讨了AI的道德困境。2020年,她与Endel合作为她和Elon Musk的孩子X Æ A-12创作了一个AI生成的摇篮曲。


What are NFTs?

NFT stands for non-fungible token, which is a type of digital asset that represents ownership of a unique item or piece of content, such as artwork, music, video, or even tweets. Unlike cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum, which are fungible and interchangeable, each NFT is unique and cannot be exchanged for another NFT at a 1:1 ratio.

NFTs are created using blockchain technology, which allows for a secure and transparent record of ownership and provenance. This means that the owner of an NFT can prove that they are the legitimate owner of the digital asset, and that it has not been duplicated or replicated.

NFTs have gained popularity in recent years as a way for artists, musicians, and other creators to monetize their digital creations and establish ownership rights. They are bought and sold on specialized marketplaces, with some NFTs selling for millions of dollars.

How are NFT important to the Future of Music?

NFTs have the potential to revolutionize the music industry in several ways:

Overall, NFTs have the potential to reshape the music industry by providing new revenue streams, enhancing fan engagement, and creating new investment opportunities.

What Are Ordinals? 

Ordinals are a new type of non-fungible token (NFT) that are taking the world of Bitcoin by storm. They are digital assets inscribed on a satoshi, which is the lowest denomination of a Bitcoin (BTC). In other words, Ordinals are a way to create unique, one-of-a-kind digital items on the Bitcoin blockchain.

The Inscription process writes or inscribes the data of the content stored into the witness of the Bitcoin transaction, which was introduced in the SegWit upgrade to the Bitcoin network in 2017. This allows for a more secure and private way to create and trade digital assets on the blockchain.

Creating an Ordinal can be a complicated process, as it requires the use of the Command Line (Windows) or Terminal (Mac/Linux) to interact with the Bitcoin blockchain. However, there are now several services available that aim to make the process more user-friendly, such as Gamma, Oridalsbot, Hiro Wallet, and Xverse.

Ordinals are similar to traditional NFTs in that they provide a way to create and trade unique digital assets. However, unlike other NFTs that are built on specialized blockchains, Ordinals are inscribed on the Bitcoin blockchain, which is the world's largest and most secure blockchain.

While Ordinals may be a relatively new concept, Bitcoin developers have been working to bring NFTs to the blockchain for nearly a decade, beginning with Counterparty in 2014, followed by Stacks in 2017. With the recent Taproot upgrade to the Bitcoin network, the development of Ordinals has become possible, allowing users to create and trade unique digital assets in a more secure and private way.

In conclusion, Ordinals are a new and exciting development in the world of Bitcoin and NFTs. As more users and developers begin to explore this technology, we can expect to see new and innovative use cases for Ordinals in the future.

What Are Meme Coins?

A memecoin is like an experimental new genre in the vast music and art scene that is the world of cryptocurrencies. Born out of the internet's relentless creativity, it starts as a playful riff on a popular meme or an offbeat idea, much like a catchy, surprising tune or a provocative piece of art. Memecoins, like Dogecoin, Shiba Inu, and now PEPE, have struck a chord with the public, thanks to their ability to combine humor, innovation, and community-building, akin to a compelling art movement or an inspiring music festival.

Just like any artwork or song, the true value of a memecoin lies in the interpretation and appreciation of its audience. The community around these digital assets forms a collective rhythm, a shared beat that drives their growth and visibility. This sense of community is not unlike the fans of a band or patrons of an art gallery, who come together to celebrate and support something they find intriguing and enjoyable.

If you're an artist, a musician, or a creative enthusiast, we invite you to explore our memecoin page. Here, you can uncover the unique narratives, trends, and communities that drive these fascinating cryptocurrencies. We encourage you to visit and immerse yourself in the diverse, dynamic melodies and vibrant colors of the memecoin landscape. Let's share this experience, and together, explore the artistic side of the crypto world!
