While the content isn't necessarily my thing, I find stuff like this rather interesting and since I just happened to hear about it I figured it deserves some shoutouts.

Hey, I ran across this the other day. Currently a little disappointing, but I'd like to see where it goes in the future.

The algorithm is only trained on Archspire right now, so the style is very limited.

Hopefully it'll improve then. It probably will though, that's kind of the point of ai right now.

I found their Bandcamp. They have selection from the output generated when the AI is trained on Meshuggah, Dillinger Escape Plan, Psyopus and more. In the article you posted, they mentioned blends of artists, but I haven't seen which one (if any) on their Bandcamp is a crossover - that's what I'd really be interested in. (Bandcamp just went down for maintenance...)

The AI seems to be a little too flexible in certain ways (rhythmically, mainly) and not flexible enough in others (like how it almost perfectly recreated the intro to Calamus Will Animate on the stream earlier, because that's the only way that it knows how to use the shotgun vocals combined with gunshot sample section).

There's a lot of potential for this project to produce some really inspiring and intricate stuff if they improve on the process. Right now, it sounds to me like already existing avant-garde music. People that are looking to be inspired by nutso music, as claimed by one of the developers to be one of their goals, would be well-served by researching the material produced by deeper human intelligence.

I don’t have anything to say yet, except that now I have a lot of listening to do.
