Deep Blue
Catalogue Number
Release Date
October 20, 2023


On October 20th, the electronic musician, visual artist, designer, and cultural researcher Damien Roach - aka patten - releases his second album of 2023, ‘Deep Blue’ via his imprint and one-man creative agency 555-5555. After April’s ground-breaking ‘Mirage FM’, (the first album made entirely from text-to-audio AI-generated sound sources,) just six months later, ‘Deep Blue’ takes the second ever text-to-audio AI album slot with an entirely different proposition.

Where ‘Mirage FM’ revelled in a heady, edge-of-collapse, genre-agnostic, collage-like set of aesthetics, ‘Deep Blue’ uses text to audio AI samples to create an uncannily human and naturalistic vision. Made using self-customised text to audio AI notebooks, a forensically detailed process of cutting and splicing the generated fragments, DSP, layering, and intensive post-production, across 9 concise tracks (including the constantly morphing 8 ½ minute opus ‘Burn Variation’), ‘Deep Blue’ sounds like a holographic jazz ensemble laying down a set of life-affirming, blissed-out, emotionally charged jams.

Named after the infamous IBM supercomputer, (the first AI to beat a reigning human world champion at chess,) across its succinct 31 minute runtime, ‘Deep Blue’ offers yet another radical glimpse into the future of creativity in the age of AI, this time traversing latent space in search of the expressive human touch behind the ghost in the machine.
