Discover how artificial intelligence is bringing deceased music icons back to life by creating new versions of their classic songs. From Freddie Mercury to Michael Jackson, experience the sounds of the past with AI-generated versions of iconic rock and pop classic
In recent months, artificial intelligence has revolutionized many industries, or at least threatens to do so, and the music industry is no exception. One such application in the music industry is the creation of versions of songs performed by deceased artists. Through the use of machine learning techniques and natural language processing, AI is able to analyze and replicate the vocal style, pronunciation, and intonation of a deceased artist, allowing for the creation of new versions of their songs and, perhaps even more curiously, new versions of classics.
We’ve already seen hologram tours featuring artists like DIO, but what if in a few years, they release a new album and present it on tour? Honestly, given what we’ve seen, it’s more than possible that this could happen. Some may see it as a threat, others as heresy, or simply as an opportunity. It’s possible that we and our children can enjoy the sounds of Elvis, M. Jackson, or even Ronnie in an experience that we can’t even imagine right now.
Here are some of the most incredible versions generated with artificial intelligence that allow us to hear what some of the great classics of rock and pop would have sounded like in the voice of artists who are no longer with us, such as Freddie Mercury or Michael Jackson.
