While it’s difficult to definitively classify any genre of music as “post-Vaporwave,” there are several examples of AI-generated music that draw inspiration from Vaporwave and its aesthetics.
One such example is the album “I AM AI” by Taryn Southern, which was entirely composed using AI technology. The album features a variety of different styles, including a track called “Life Support” that incorporates Vaporwave-inspired production elements. The track features slowed-down, chopped-up samples of 80s pop songs, which is a common technique used in Vaporwave music.
Another example is the album “Hello World” by SKYGGE, which was created using AI algorithms that analyzed and synthesized existing music. The album features a variety of different styles, including a track called “Hello Shadow” that incorporates Vaporwave-inspired production elements. The track features a slowed-down, dreamy atmosphere that is characteristic of Vaporwave music.
Finally, OpenAI’s Jukebox AI music generator has been used to create several Vaporwave-inspired tracks, including “Vaporchamber” and “Vaporwave Dreams.” These tracks feature the signature slowed-down samples and dreamy atmospheres that are characteristic of Vaporwave music, but were entirely generated using AI technology.
These examples demonstrate that AI-generated music can draw inspiration from Vaporwave and its aesthetics, and that AI technology can be used to create new works of music that build upon and expand the Vaporwave genre. While it’s difficult to predict the future of music, it’s clear that AI-generated music is already contributing to the ongoing evolution of Vaporwave and other genres.
