‘The Truth’ – Deepfake remixes
In celebration of a step in the right direction, our long-time visual collaborator Michael Connolly has tried his hand at a series of ‘deepfake remixes’ for our track ‘The Truth’.
As our album KOMPROMAT deals with themes of information and how data misuse has led to this nightmarish present, it feels apt to see how artificial intelligence would rework our music. It seems to think we should be more melodic, throw in a few key changes and also consider using panpipes. The future of music is pretty nightmarish too it seems.
“The audio in these three vignettes is an AI model trying to continue ‘The Truth’, generated using the OpenAI Jukebox,” Connolly explains. “I revisited my auto edit system from ‘The Truth’ & ‘Dig In’ promo videos and poured on more nightmare fuel. Merry Christmas!”
