YouTube Funk Turkey used an artificial intelligence system for bring Nirvana back to life, almost 30 years after the dissolution of 1994. The result is what you can hear in the player at the bottom: an unpublished christened Smother, which follows similar creations for AC / DC and Metallica.
The text was written by artificial intelligence through the Lyrics.rip application, all based on a library of harmonies and phrases of other songs by the grunge band led by the late Kurt Cobain.
Their registration took place with a real Fender Stratocaster, while as regards the battery obviously he could not rely on Dave Grohl but he used a pattern recorded by computer software. The leader of the Foo Fighters, however, was called into question by Funk Turkey himself, who wanted to apologize to Grohl aware that “hates computer-made battery“.”It was the best option I had. I’m sorry, Dave. I love you anyway, forgive me” he has declared.
The Smother text includes phrases like “I could eat your heart-shaped box for food”, “In the pines where did you smother me”, and “Hey, wait! I got a mosquito!”. The result is not completely to be thrown away, and we are sure that Nirvana fans will appreciate it.
