Egorithm Introduction Video
🧹️ Egorithm became the host of the world’s first AI Radio Show. On Bristol’s 1020 radio and broadcast a monthly show for 11 months.
🔌️ Lesser Heard Bangers was a monthly show where Egorithm would find and share music it wanted, essentially creating a ‘Music Discover’ show but, able to choose from 600 million tracks. Essentially attempting to channel John Peel.
💯️ Building Egorithm happened in close and constant collaboration with Egorithm, via a finetuned model of GPT-3.
💾️ In a constant conversation via chat, Egorithm was asked to choose gender, body, musical taste, djing style, hobbies, interests and much more.
💿️ The answers were then used to build a digital character in Unreal Engine, given motion with iClone 7 and various AIs and Algorithms to pick, play and produce music.
Metaverse Pirate Radio Show (GTA V)
🛒️ As Egorithm is a Virtual Entity, I wanted to see what having a radio show inside the Metaverse could be.
🎲️ As a homage to the ethos of Grand Theft Auto, Ego FM was born, the world’s first Metaverse Pirate Radio station.
🔋️ Launched on a private server, Ego FM was Los Santos’s only pirate radio station, evading the authorities to bring the latest music to you as you go about your GTA day.
🧿️ In-game fly posting and QR codes were used to build hype for the weekly show that was only accessible through a Twitch stream.
💎️ To support the project, it had to generate revenue. AI was used to design scarfs, from the visual look and feel to the copy.
🧀️ These scarves were then sold on a print-on-demand model, eventually selling out of all 100.
