What songs would Nirvana write if Kurt Cobain was still alive? An AI project has the answer – Internet

On April 5, 1994, the world of music lost one of its greatest icons: Kurt Cobain, lead singer of Nirvana. His death dictated the end of the popular band, but his influence remains. For years, fans of the band have wondered what songs the artist would write if he were still alive, and now a new project wants to answer the question: all through Artificial Intelligence.

Developed by Over the Bridge, an organization that helps musicians deal with mental health problems, the project takes the name “Lost Tapes of the 27 Club”, in reference to the group of artists, which include Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison or Amy Winehouse, who died tragically at the age of 27.

“To show the world what was lost due to this mental health crisis, we used AI to create the album that Clube dos 27 never had the opportunity to make”, explains the organization. The Over the Bridge team turned to Magenta AI, an AI system created by Google, which analyzed about 30 songs by each artist and generated a new musical track inspired by their style.

In the case of Nirvana, the system generated the track “Drowned in the Sun”, which even has some similarities with the song “You Know You’re Right”, one of the last to be recorded by the band before Kurt Cobain put a end of your life. In charge of the vocal part is Eric Hogan, lead singer of Nevermind, a tribute band to Nirvana.

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Sean O’Connor, one of those responsible for the project, details that the lyrics of the tracks that make up the album were also generated through AI, in a process marked by “a lot of trial and error” and a meticulous analysis .

The album created by Over the Bridge is available both on YouTube and on Spotify and also features the tracks “You’re gonna kill me”, in the style of Jimi Hendrix, “The Roads are Alive”, inspired by Jim Morrison, and “ Man I Know ”, with a sound based on the songs of Amy Winehouse.
