‘Deep’ refers to deep learning, and the use of deepfakes has been spreading across several methods and fields. From images of celebrities in various movies to fake words in politicians’ mouths and the rise of the phenomena in music, this particular concept is growing more famous.
When it comes to visual deepfakes, algorithms learn to generate and manipulate the image data they are given. But there is also an increasing number of tools—specifically, apps—for producing musical deepfakes.
In the music industry, deepfakes have exerted the form of fake audio that can certainly imitate famous artists. This helps in reproducing all their idiosyncrasies of intonation, phrasing, and pitch.
Deepfake technology is still obviously in its opening phase, but most creators have been drifting into hyperreality for years.
