Miami, FL, USA and The Republic of Užupis, Vilnius, Lithuania – 05 NOVEMBER 2021.
History will be made on November 6th, 2021, when a first cryptoart creation “Blind” from the Victoria Unikel’s art series “Dimensions of the Soul” drops on the Ethereum blockchain through KnownOrigin Labs platform, created by the international collaborative team of multi-awarded artists. New series featuring AI experiments conducted by Gleb Divov on visual reimagining of the works of Victoria Unikel and a unique AI-composed soundtrack.
The star of the creation process is the multi-awarded, world’s first psychology-based Creative AI music composer Musical Blockchain, which is reconstructing visuals and composing music, based on the Source-of-Inspiration-approach, Psychological Matrix invention, Decentralized Improvisation and own methods of artwork analysis, assigning emotional valuations to the visual layers and musical components.
A mixed-media artwork – original creation of the award-winning international artist and producer Victoria Unikel titled “Blind” was used as the Source of Inspiration for Creative AI for the first NFT in the new series.
The original physical artwork was donated to Make-A-Wish Foundation to support their humanitarian work and will be auctioned at the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s South Florida celebrity charity benefit on the same day, November 6th, 2021. The new version of the artwork “Blind” is created with the help of AI, using modern generative practices and utilizing the power of multiple modern Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN) and Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN), compiled together by the multidisciplinary immersive artist Gleb Divov.
For music creation no pre-training on existing music was done – the generated music is 100% original and created by the AI music composer, based on own musical experience and purely on what it sees in the source artwork. Multi-awarded Creative AI composer Musical Blockchain, invented by Gleb Divov and his team, builds probabilistic graphical model of emotional markers to add human-like performer behavior with various psychological profiles of virtual musicians on the nodes within the composition it has created. Music is said to affect the emotions directly, and this psychology-based computer-created shortcut to the audience’s emotions is a powerful tool that the artist using for better projection of the emotions of the original works.
NFT “Blind” is the first in a series of NFTs created from the works of Victoria Unikel that are collectively titled “Dimensions of the Soul”.
