Doc Searls and Katherine Druckman speak with Damien Riehl and Noah Rubin from the All the Music project, allthemusic.info, a project that has machine-generated all possible melodies and released them to the public domain. We discuss music copyright in the digital landscape and musical math and humanity. We highly recommend watching Damien's TEDx Minneapolis talk here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJtm0MoOgiU
