of , and in a via the use of adversarial network, or GAN animation.

Last year Bulgarian producer Etien Slavchev, who makes austere and searing electronic music as Evitceles, joined forces with the suggestively named Spite Cathedral for a split release on Mälmo’s experimental imprint Sound+Matter.

‘Endless Reach’ is the doom-laden opener to that release, pairing dread bass and haunted strings to chilling effect. Slavchev enlisted the talents of programmer and artist Rim Mustafin to create a visual accompaniment, which he created using a generative adversarial network.

By feeding images of buildings in Sofia, Berlin and Perm into the machine learning framework, Mustafin is able to combine these images in a lysergic process of merging that blurs the line between art and science.

“‘Endless Reach’ is a trip down the memory lane via a neural recollection of memories,” explains Mustafin. Drawing inspiration from artists such as Refik Anadol and Kevin McGloughlin, Mustafin describes the work as “a walk in a latent space of the latest generative adversarial network model, orchestrated by audio-reactive signal processing and live mixing.”

‘Endless Reach’ is taken from recent split release with on . The tracks that appear on the release serve as a continuation of Evitceles’ album Нелюбов, which was also released on Sound+Matter.
