CREATING STUNNING ART FROM USERS FAVORITE TRACKS WITH THE AI-GENERATOR
The Perceptual Visualizer is an innovative AI-generator developed by BDNORDIC for our client, Perlisten Audio, that transforms users favorite music tracks into visual art. Perlisten is passionate about delivering an elevated listening experience, that transcends the auditory realm. With this experimental project, we have leveraged the latest AI technology to enhance the perceptual listening experience by creating stunning visual representations of users favorite tracks.
NEW WAYS TO VISUALIZE THE BEAUTY OF MUSIC
Listening to music is an all-encompassing experience that engages all our senses, including our visual imagination. With this special project, we’ve harnessed the power of AI technology to generate stunning visuals that capture the essence of the listening experience. Whether you’re an audiophile, a music lover, or simply someone who appreciates the beauty of art, our AI-generator will take you on a journey of sensory exploration.
HARNESSING THE CREATIVE POTENTIAL OF AI
The latest developments in AI technology offer an enormous creative potential as AI algorithms are becoming new creative players and creators that are transforming our way of thinking about creativity. It’s important to recognize that these new technologies pose challenges and ethical considerations. However, we also believe that there are exciting possibilities for AI to enhance our creativity and transform the way we think about art and expression.
With Perceptual Visualizer, we wanted to explore the creative potential of AI-technologies and showcase how they can be used to elevate the listening experience in new and exciting ways. Hence, we set out to combine the power of AI with the Perlisten experience that our followers know and love.
HOW IT WORKS
Perceptual Visualizer is powered by two advanced machine learning models that utilize artificial intelligence to create unique visual art from music tracks.
In the first step of the process, Perceptual Visualizer uses GPT 3.5 to translate users’ inputs – the song, artist, and genre – into a textual description that represents the essence of the music. GPT 3.5 is an advanced language model that uses deep learning techniques to generate human-like text, making it the perfect tool for describing the intricate details of a music track.
Once the textual description has been generated, Perceptual Visualizer uses Stable Diffusion XL, another powerful machine learning model, to transform the text into an abstract digital visual artwork. Stable Diffusion XL uses a diffusion process to generate a unique image that is inspired by the textual description, resulting in a one-of-a-kind visual representation of the music.
CREATING A VISUAL UNIVERSE FOR PERLISTENERS
The Perceptual Visualizer generates its unique and creative images through the AI’s associations and interpretations of the input music track. These graphical outputs are ultimately a product of all the data on which the algorithm is trained, which includes almost all the content on the internet.
In this sense, the creative images that the algorithm creates can be seen as a product of the sum of all the graphic representations of music tracks found on the internet.
However, to ensure that the creative outputs of the Perceptual Visualizer align with Perlisten’s brand and aesthetic, we defined certain guidelines within which the algorithm operates. The majority of the unique outputs feature a circular shape, drawing inspiration from Perlisten’s DPC array – the innovative technology that enables Perlisten to deliver superior sound quality by optimizing early reflections and sound power.
Secondly, the creative forces behind the visualizer have been instructed to operate within an aesthetic framework that echoes Perlisten’s visual universe. This means that the resulting shapes often bear traces of sound waves and other audio-related shapes and patterns.
However, due to the unpredictable nature of working with AI algorithms, the output cannot always be fully controlled. This element of unpredictability is also what makes the project exciting, as it allows for experimentation and playfulness. If the output doesn’t quite match the users’ expectations, they can simply try again.
With Perceptual Visualizer, we’re excited to offer our community of Perlisteners a new way to experience the beauty of music. We’re proud to have brought this project to life, and we hope that it adds value to the Perlisten experience that our followers have come to love.
