New Approaches to Audiovisual Synthesis using Deep Learning

The subject is a series of experimental works in producing images, video, sound, and text using recent advances in unsupervised deep learning research. They include:

Recomposing images in the style of iconic paintings, using deep convolutional neural networks.

Audio synthesis using recurrent neural networks.

Similar approach to text generation (next section) but trained on audio (in frequency domain) instead of characters, producing noisy audio which nevertheless resembles the source it was trained on. Audio generation is less developed than text and image generation but very promising. Some samples:
