Why “My Old Nine”?

The name “My Old Nine” was inspired by a phrase from William Shakespeare’s Sonnet 38. In this poem, the speaker is struggling to find inspiration for his writing until he turns his attention to his beloved, whom he describes as a muse that is “ten times more in worth” than the traditional nine muses of Greek mythology. The speaker refers to these muses as the “old nine,” suggesting that they are outdated or no longer relevant.

To me, “My Old Nine” represents the fusion of the past and the future. It pays homage to the traditional creative process while also acknowledging the potential of new technologies like artificial intelligence. By combining human and AI art, I hope to create something that is both classic and innovative, something that draws on the past while also pushing the boundaries of what is possible.

Artificial intelligence is often associated with innovation and the future, but it can also be seen as a tool for exploring the past. By analyzing patterns and trends in historical art and literature, AI can help us gain new insights and create something truly unique. In this sense, the “old nine” can be thought of as a reference not just to the traditional muses of Greek mythology, but also to the rich history of human creativity that has come before us.

At “My Old Nine,” I believe that art is a collaborative process. By combining the creative instincts of human artists with the analytical power of artificial intelligence, I hope to create something truly original. My goal is to inspire, to push the boundaries of what is possible, and to bring something new and exciting to the world of art.
