About this Event

YACHT will play their new album, Chain Tripping, in its entirety, followed by favorites from their 17-year catalogue of janky disco, damaged pop, and sideways experimentation. Support from XLNT.

Chain Tripping is YACHT’s seventh album and third with DFA RECORDS. It was composed as a collaboration with and/or struggle through artificial intelligence, using an uncharacteristically low-tech approach to this high-tech possibility: the band painstakingly stitched together meaningful fragments of plausible nonsense from endless fields of machine-generated music and lyrics, themselves emerging from models created with the help of generous experts in neural networks, deep learning, and AI.

Armed with custom and custom-tweaked machine learning models, YACHT was able to generate massive volumes of lyrical and melodic information from the space in-between melodies in their own back catalogue—which they then approached as source material, using a process more influenced by analog cut-up writing techniques than anything explicitly technological. The result is a groundbreaking pop experiment, with melodies and lyrics culled from the interdimensional depths of latent space and arranged, produced, and performed live by three human beings in the loop, already being called “awesome, amazing, danceable weirdness” and “big, clever fun” by those in the know.

XLNT is none other than Devin Flynn, an animator, teacher, and musician long associated with DFA via Pixeltan, and Eddie Ruscha, that cosmic jam sorcerer, interstellar groove explorer, and adventurous collaborator operating under a host of names, the most prominent of which is Secret Circuit.
