I discovered something this week that really excited me as a lover of music. It’s called The Eternal Jukebox, and you can find the link to it here.
The Eternal Jukebox uses AI to create an endless loop of your favorite song, by cutting to similar parts of the song over and over again. You can try it out with (pretty much) any song, and it’s crazy how seamless the transitions are. I was able to listen to Circles by Post Malone for ten minutes.
What really interested me about this website is the autocanonizer. Musical canon, put simply, is when two voices are singing the same song, but at different times. So this program is able to automatically try and fit complimentary pieces of the song together in both pitch, and rhythm; that’s what I’ve been able to gather from the hundreds of songs I’ve listened to through it. Their autocanonizer works for (pretty much) any song you can think of, and some of the songs I put through the system became more enhanced versions of the regular song (really gave me chills). So I’ve compiled a list of my top five choices for the best autocanonized songs on The Eternal Jukebox. Listen for yourself! Comment any other songs that sound reinvented, that you were able to find!
