Grimes to Share Royalties with AI Creators Using Her Voice

...By Henry George for TDPel Media.

The rise of AI-generated art has raised concerns among creatives in various industries about copyright infringement.


However, Canadian musician and producer Grimes recently tweeted that she will treat AI creators using her voice the same as other artists with whom she collaborates.

Grimes stated that she would like to split 50% royalties on any successful AI-generated song that uses her voice.

She added that she has no label or legal bindings that could cause intellectual property rights issues.

Grimes Supports Open-Sourcing Art

Grimes stated that she finds it “cool to be fused with a machine” and supports open-sourcing art, which could ultimately “kill copyright.”

She expressed curiosity about what creators could do with the technology and is “interested in being a Guinea pig.”


Grimes posted an article on the recent outcry surrounding AI-generated tracks of Drake and The Weeknd.

On April 13, Universal Music Group sent an email to major streaming services to block AI from accessing its catalogs for learning purposes.

Grimes to Create a Publicly Available Voice Simulation Program

In a separate statement, Grimes revealed that she is creating a voice simulation program with a team of developers that will be made publicly available.

The program should simulate her voice well, and users could upload stems and samples to train their own voice simulations.

AI-Generated Deep Fakes Raise Ethical Concerns

AI-generated deep fakes utilizing images and voices of individuals are already causing ethical concerns.

Recently, a German tabloid used AI to generate a fake interview with former Formula One driver Michael Schumacher.


Concerns are also circulating within companies producing the technology, after reports revealed Google employees’ worries about its forthcoming AI-chatbot.


Grimes’s willingness to share royalties with AI creators is an innovative approach to AI-generated art.

The music industry has been slow to adapt to the digital age, and it’s interesting to see how artists are using technology to create new forms of art.

However, concerns about copyright infringement and AI-generated deep fakes remain, and it’s important to find ways to address these issues.

Grimes’s stance on open-sourcing art and her creation of a publicly available voice simulation program could be a step towards more collaboration and experimentation in the industry.
