AI content creators like Stable Diffusion allow artists to create psychedelic music videos that will blow your mind. See for yourself
Back in the old days, when people wanted to create a trippy psychedelic video they had to animate every single frame by hand. The work could easily take weeks or even months. Last week I wrote an article about psychedelic trips in kids cartoons, but this week takes us into an entirely new level of trippy videos.
Created using Stable Diffusion, the video for the song “Peligro” by Chris Allen shows the potential for creating bizarre new worlds with AI. This psychedelic nightmare is a voyage through a realm of grinning goblins, grotesque elves, and fantasy creatures from the edge of imagination. The style and color palette is eerily reminiscent of 60s and 70s day-glow psychedelic cartoons like Yellow Submarine or Fantastic Planet.
When watching this video I am reminded of roller-coaster style psychedelic trips through alien landscapes with menacing creatures and insect aliens from anther dimension. The psychedelic visuals morph seamlessly from one to the next, creating a nightmare of sights and textures set to an ominous dubstep beat. Happy rainbows spin into rows of grinning teeth and surreal robots morph into alien blob creatures… and unicorns? This video has it all. I’m looking forward to how this technology progresses. In the near future there is a good chance that all music videos are made using a similar process.
