about

This neural metal album was created during the Canadian Music Week 2018 Hackathon in Toronto.

Music was generated autoregressively with SampleRNN, a recurrent neural network [Soroush Mehri et al. 2017], trained on raw audio from the album Awakening Inception by Aepoch. The machine listened to Awakening Inception 28 times. The machine generated hundreds of minutes of audio. Two humans listened to the machine audio, chose sections from varied evolution points, and taped them together into a ~10 minute album. Song titles were generated by a Markov chain. The album cover was generated using neural style transfer, by style transferring the original album cover with two different band photos, then overlaying them with an overlay filter.

This neural album is part of ongoing research. For more information, read the submission to NIPS 2017 Workshop for Machine Learning, Creativity and Design: "Generating Black Metal and Math Rock" [Carr & Zukowski 2017] dadabots.com/nips2017/generating-black-metal-and-math-rock.pdf
