This week on PTA’s The Occasional Podcast, Michael Lavorgna of Twittering Machines joins in on the fun. Michael has a long history with HiFi, audio and things of a digital nature. While Mr. Lavorgna was at the helm of Stereophile’s Audiostream site for the bulk of its existence, he has now branched out to all things high fidelity with his latest independent venture in TM.

Also featured in the show is a slew of new AI generated songs. Giving three examples of the current output available, the show discusses first hand the current state of things in AI, and how it could possibility be a benefit to some… and hopefully not the destruction of musical enjoyment as we currently know it. Still, there might be reasons to be optimistic, although the current crop of songs from the show might leave a little to be desired.

Let us know on the socials what you think about the three songs in the intro, and if you have any favorites.
