The neural network learned to write songs in the style of Nirvana
Programmers Ivan Yamshchikov and Alexei Tikhonov recorded using neural networks mini-album and shot a video for one of the songs.
Russian programmers Ivan Yamshchikov and Alexei Tikhonov taught a neural network to write poetry in the style of the leader of the group Nirvana Kurt Cobain. A music video for one of the songs In the back of your glass, was published on the YouTube channel Creaited Labs.
Coachmen and Tikhonov have programmed a neural network, and then cut from its text, four songs and wrote music to it. Programmers took away on the Internet about 200 MB of texts of classical and modern English and tried to use these data for training.
“The quality of the selected data is of great importance”, — noted on the project website. — “It turned out that it is impossible to teach the neural network to create something even remotely resembling English poetry, to use a crude collection from the Internet”. As a result, programmers used to train the neural network only 100 MB of data selected in the beginning.
The vocals for all four songs recorded musician from new York, Rob Carroll.
Mini-album project Neurona available for streaming.
Previously, coachmen and Tikhonov taught a neural network to write lyrics in the style of Yegor Letov and recorded the album “Neural defense”.
