Awesome. Thanks for sharing!
Since this is private footage there is no telling how much and what is still in someone's closet. I woudn't be surprised if more Beach Boys footage than we already know turns up at some point.

Here is some rare footage I think Board members might find interesting:

I've often wondered how much footage like this and featuring the Berach Boys is locked away in someone's closet - never before seen.

And what do you know, the legendary BBS historian is talking sh*tů

This is all so freaking fantastic. As Brian seems to be pretty much done recording, these sort of projects will fulfill a real need. Keep it coming, please!

I wonder if it would be possible to, for example, take multitracks of vocals from a Beatles song, including backing vocals, and replace every single track with an AI Beach Boy equivalent (using the recorded tracks as guide vocals, rather than re-recording one's own). Here, There, and Everywhere?

(Well, heck, this would be the best way to replace vocal tracks on BWPS.)

This stuff definitely sounds "close enough" to Brian Wilson that when I hear it, yeah I do start to think, huh, what if we had the 1966 Beach Boys' voices singing the 2004 lyrics to "Blue Hawaii" or "On a Holiday"?  Could a complete, seamless Smile LP be created with AI?   And the answer to that question would appear to be "yes."  But should it be done?  I must admit that I'm a little uncomfortable with the idea, and we get into philosophical questions about whether something "artificial" can be an acceptable substitute for something "real"... and the extent to which the lines between "real"l and "artificial" are blurring. We're  in brave new world

I definitely get that. I think it's important that anyone who does these labels them as "AI" so it's documented. Who knows, it could become illegal one day. I'm surprised deepfakes are still legal.

Probably not technically a deep fake (as it's clearly satire), but the one where George Lucas critiques the Rise of Skywalker trailer is one of the greatest things to come from this era/tech.

The other day Elon Musk and a bunch of other techies said that a 6-month halt on AI technology was needed - now I'm wondering if Elon's less concerned with ChatGPT and more concerned with the possibility of hearing Mike Love singing lead on 'God Only Knows' Grin

Hey all,

I came across some new technology and decided to have a little fun with it!

Here's one to test the waters:

I've been debating posting, but it was too overwhelming to think I'm the only who has heard any of this stuff.  Grin

The technology is here. Should we have some fun before all the sh*t takes start popping up?   LOL

PS - Lots more where this came from, if people are interested!

This is in a weird, good, bad, amazing way LOL

Seriously it wasn't perfect but moments in there sounded like straight up Brian. And to heck with perfection, that this is even remotely possible is mind-blowing. I can't even imagine how this technology will transform even in just the next year.

I'm rather concerned about this technology for many reasons, but this is a case where the creative in me is excited for the possibilities.

We have MIDI orchestras, pianos, etc that can help us replicate an orchestra/band. And now we can add "Brian Wilson", "Carl Wilson", etc to the list of instruments people can use to create their own little slices of beautiful music.

I'm sure a lot of bad sounding stuff will come from this, but I can imagine that we'll all be pleasantly surprised (as we already are) at some gems that come from this new era of technology.

Great work, seltaeb!

Is anyone suggesting it sounds "just like" Brian?

While that precise verbiage hasn't been used, I think "it's AI so it's not gonna be perfect - but I think it's damn close" is something very near such a claim. "Damn close to just like Brian" as it were.

I think what I was generally trying to allude to in what I've seen from a lot of folks who use AI applications and are most bullish about it is that there often isn't much moderation in how they sort of self-assess the work (or assess the work of others using AI). The sensibility isn't so much artistic as it is trying "prove" the tech.

I don't see a lot of "this was just for a lark; I'm not sure how good it is, but it's just an experiment", and I see a lot more "this is amazing stuff and we're on the precipice of the world changing, and while I maybe can't claim it's 100% indistinguishable from the real thing, I think it's like 99% there", if not folks (and I'm referring in this case more to loud, AI people who are often also like crypto dudebros on social media, who think their AI art built off of Google image hits of other artists is perfect) who say they are just as much an "artist" as someone who actually makes the stuff for real.

Ooh I got one! How about a super rare acetate of the Til I Die demo with a long lost vocal track?


It can't be a Brian Wilson demo without him going "andthenitgoes" every ten seconds! While I think some of the phrasing is a bit too exaggerated (i.e. the "hey hey hey" lines are a bit oversung IMO), this is extremely impressive, I hope this program can be released somehow!

Next they need to use AI to write imitation Beach Boys songs.
