Sweaty Machines  Blue Jeans and Bloody Tears   Favoriting     Stashu sent this song! As Europe (together with Australia and Israel) are glued to their TV sets watching the 64th Eurovision song competition, we asked ourselves What makes a Eurovision song memorable? does a Eurovision hit have special DNA? We are a group of artists, musicians and programmers that wanted explore human creativity and challenge it. We have created a Eurovision AI song that celebrates Eurovision – its melodrama, kitsch and camp, its humor and its gimmicks. The result is comprised entirely of material written and composed by Artificial Intelligence, titled "Blue Jeans & Bloody Tears". The project team fed hundreds of Eurovision songs – melodies and lyrics – into a neuron network. Then, algorithms produced thousands of new tunes and lines of verse, from which a few musical units were carefully selected and “welded” into a song. We hope this song will become the Eurovision unofficial anthem of Eurovision 2019. A duet on disillusioned love between Izhar Cohen (Israel's first Eurovision winner, 1978) and a computer, written and composed by a computer. The song was produced by Avshalom Ariel - one of the creators of TOY (Eurovision song winner, 2018)    1:36:07 (Pop-up)
