An artificial intelligence recently released a death metal album created entirely by machine learning algorithms. There is already programmable machine to create new music. But this time is different. Because you can’t tell the difference.
With advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning, computers are now capable of creating music that is difficult find whether it’s created by man or machine. And an example for this is Coditany of Timeness, a black metal album made entirely by an artificial neural network.
Coditany of Timeness is the product of a project undertaken by CJ Carr and Zack Zukowski. It’s a five-track black metal album that features songs with algorithmically generated titles like,
- Memoryearion (02:29)
- Timension (01:37)
- Wisdom Trippin’ (04:06)
- Energiveness (02:09)
- Inhusk (03:00)
The album’s name and the titles of the songs were conceived by another AI. And the artwork for the album cover was created by another algorithm. In other words, a band of robots just dropped an independent metal album.
DADABOTS’ debut album was created, musically, by a neural-network studying the work of a human metal band called Krallice.
Basically, the AI listened to all the sounds it was fed and started trying to guess what more of the same would sound like it. It did this a few million times before it was able to create its own original work.
