There's nothing that blurs the line between frightening and fascinating quite like artificial intelligence.
And since artificial intelligence and electronic music are becoming more symbiotic by the day, the staff here at EDM.com wanted to see just how far it could go in a visual sense. So we came up with bizarre descriptions of artists and fed them through A.I. art generators.
Some images are photorealistic. Others are fancifully distorted. And the majority of them are flat-out creepy.
But we digress. Read on to see our weird and wonderful creations.
