Are you afraid of automation ? Are you afraid of losing your job ? Do you fear the unknown ? Do you fear machine intelligence ?
(Why would I automate something I like doing ?)
In the 1980s, a scene of the House music was born in Detroit. It was the first one to massively use automation process. At that time, Detroit was poor and marked by segregation. It’s only legacy was the remnants of a generalized fordism.
It was in a sense of cultural identity that Detroit musicians introduced new tools that was automating some parts of their creation. They were finally followed by the whole world. Integrating these new technics never reduced the work of the musicians, but increased their possibilities.
