I think that is what was being said. Music today seems to be no longer
about communicating anything at all... merely soundiing somewhat pleasant,
or showing off some vocal (or other) gymnastics seems to be most of it.
Actually communicating what is in the artists heart is rare and too hard
for a money making organization to quantify, so they have gone for what is
quantifiable: Take a song that is already a hit, use a producer that we
know makes us money, get someone with a strong voice who can hit all the
notes and doesn't care too much what they sing so long as they get paid.
"Music" making tools that help that process are going to be what sw makers
are going to look to for their bread and butter. It may be possible to
make actual music with those tools too...
