“We’re excited to announce our recent collaboration with Datarock, where we’ve utilized cutting-edge technology to produce a series of music videos, each distinctively crafted for four tracks from their new album. These videos have been brought to life using state-of-the-art text-to-image diffusion models, Stable Diffusion, Control Net as well as Deforum. In the world where AI meets creativity, these advanced models translate the core emotions and narratives of the music into compelling visual experiences.”
