Yeah I Feelings

Collaboration with Sofía Suazo. 2018

Yeah I feelings is a 2:19 minutes musical piece inspired in Radiohead’s Fitter Happier song from the album Ok Computer. It was build by predicting Radiohead-styled lyrics and melodies from two databases, which were live triggered from two computers. The piece’s text was generated using a Markov Chain model trained with Radiohead’s lyrics and triggered.

Besides, the music was generated using a long short-term memory (LSMT) recurrent neural network (RRN) trained with data collected from MIDI files. The original idea was to compose a Thom Yorke-styled melody from of a bunch of Radiohead’s songs but the difficulty of properly interpreting time from MIDI files brought us to reinterpret the result of the prediction process.
