Music was generated autoregressively with SampleRNN, a recurrent neural network, trained on raw audio from the album Ideas of Reference. The machine listened to the album 29 times over several days. The machine generated 435 minutes of audio. A human listened to the machine audio, chose sections from varied evolution points, and taped them together into a 10 minute album.
Titles were generated by a Markov chain, except for track 2. Epoch 29, iteration 79751 refers to how much the net had trained when the track was generated.
The album cover was human photoshopped. It's a parody of the original cover. The crop circle appeared July 7th, 2018 in Martinsell Hill, England.
The vocals are just generated nonsense syllables. But it's funny to come up with lyrics. Let us know if you do.
