There’s nothing that blurs the line between scary and fascinating quite like artificial intelligence.
And as artificial intelligence and electronic music become more symbiotic day by day, the staff of EDM.com wanted to see how far it could go visually. So we came up with bizarre descriptions of artists and fed them through AI art generators.
Some images are photorealistic. Others are fancifully distorted. And the majority of them are downright scary.
But we digress. Read on to see our weird and wonderful creations.
