The Dillinger Escape Plan + Krallice Music Used in Artificial Intelligence-Created Albums
The future is now. We're already on the brink of hologram tours becoming a regularity, bringing some of our most beloved artists to the stage postmortem. With the live aspect of technology merging with music, the next inevitable step is the advent of artificially created music... and it's here.
CJ Carr and Zack Zukowski are the duo behind Dadabots, a project that has seen them take albums from The Dillinger Escape Plan and New York black metal outfit Krallice and feed them through a neural network which ultimately learned patterns in the music to create something new altogether, but still had traces of recognizable elements from each band.
Dillinger's technically advanced debut album, Calculating Infinity and Krallice's 2011 effort Diotima were both used, resulting in the artificially-created Calculating Calculating Infinity and Coditany of Timeness albums, which can be heard below. In addition to the music, the song's titles were also fed through a computer algorithm, which then produced new titles.
“Early in its training, the kinds of sounds it produces are very noisy and grotesque and textural,” Carr told The Outline when speaking about Coditany of Timeness. “As it improves its training, you start hearing elements of the original music it was trained on come through more and more.” Of course, it helps that both bands play distorted, chaotic brands of metal that would have everymen chalking it up to just a bunch of noise, but for the initiated, both albums bear distinct enough hallmarks to point out the source material.
With The Dillinger Escape Plan about to play their final shows ever, perhaps artificially created music serves as an alternative, giving us more Dillinger music. What do you think?
