YouTuber creates 'new' Iron Maiden song 'Power Gravy' using artificial intelligence


Iron Maiden might not have released original music for half a decade, but YouTuber Funk Turkey has employed artificial intelligence to create a track in imitation of the band entitled'Power Gravy'. The generated lyrics open: "8 and 40 souls became the number of the Moon / when you're debating witches and the clouds In His Majesty's Craft", while the chorus concerns the titular'Power Gravy'. "Vocals are… hard," Connor wrote on YouTube. "Bruce Dickinson is very hard to emulate/impersonate, so I just did the best I could and hope it's not awful. That man has golden pipes. It sounds like a South Park parody, but then again, it is a parody, so… uhhhh… don't take it too seriously."

YouTuber Funk Turkey has made a new fake Nirvana song using A.I. programming. It's Turkey's latest endeavor following a flurry of other mock tracks mimicking the likes of AC/DC, Metallica and Nickelback, to name a few. The song is called "Smother," a three-minute concoction of Nirvana-esque tropes that attempts to mirror the legendary band's distinctive personality. Turkey notes in the video's description, "using to scrape the Genius Lyrics Database, I made a Markov Chain write Nirvana lyrics." Generating lines like "I could eat your heart-shaped box for food" and "You never lost control," the lyrics reappropriate familiar keywords from some of Nirvana's biggest hits.

If artificial intelligence truly becomes intelligent, the computer brains of the future will be AC/DC fans, won't they? They might even start their own tribute bands – and if they take it a step further and start writing their own songs, the results could sound like a new track created by YouTuber Funk Turkey called "Great Balls." The song was assembled after he put all of AC/DC's lyrics through a Markov chain. The modeling software is normally used for complex analysis of things like predicting thermodynamic states, DNA evolution, solar panel efficiency, computer speech recognition, web-surfing behavior and stock market trends. "I put the lyrics of AC/DC into a bot and asked it to write a song," Funk Turkey explained.

Libya's GNA launches counterattack after deadly rocket barrage

Al Jazeera

Libya's UN-supported government launched a counterattack on Sunday against a strategic military base used by renegade commander Khalifa Haftar to pound the capital Tripoli with rocket fire. The response came after a missile barrage damaged Tripoli's main airport and set fuel tanks and several aircraft ablaze, with at least six civilians killed in surrounding residential areas in the attacks on Saturday. Meanwhile, Turkey - the Government of National Accord's (GNA) main ally defending Tripoli against Haftar's Libyan National Army (LNA) - threatened to step up its attacks against the eastern-based LNA, which has attempted to seize the capital for more than a year. "The forces of war criminal [Haftar] fired more than a hundred rockets and missiles at residential areas in the centre of the capital," the GNA said in a statement on Facebook. The airport was badly damaged and came under renewed rocket fire on Sunday morning, it said.
