Using existing politically charged texts as source material - we train machine learning algorithms on manifestos from a variety of ideological perspectives, testimonies from sexual predators who are serving on the Supreme Court, speeches by feminist heroes, books by controversial dolphin-loving visionaries and more to produce poetic and dream-like computer-generated lyrics.
