The Bob Dylain Project:
A creative AI exploration
Can humans and AI create together?
And what role can AI play in the creative process?
To find out, I trained an AI model on the songwriting catalog of Bob Dylan and asked the model to generate new lyrics in Dylan's style.
I got my hands dirty with some AI training code,
and sifted through thousands of AI-generated songs
until I found lyrics that felt like they could have come from Dylan himself.
But the song wasn't a song yet. It needed a human touch to infuse it with emotion and become something that would resonate with people.
So I partnered with Dylan superfan, FB Group admin and musician Tony Attwood.
He created original music and melodies for the AI-generated lyrics,
creating something truly magical: a song created together with AI—hand in digital hand.
