In this episode of Chinchilla Squeaks, I delve into two main topics. First, a series of articles on how AI, specifically GPT-4 and other models, struggle to understand and generate sheet music, highlighting issues with tempo, dynamics, and basic music theory.

Second, the financial hardships faced by touring musicians today, with insights into the low profitability and high costs of touring, even for bands with significant chart success. 

I also shares updates, including recent work on writing for robots and a demo of the cloud-native security tool Falco.
