Porter Robinson’s ‘Sad Machine’ Is A Futuristic Love Story

Three days ago, Porter Robinson shared with his 2.5M+ soundcloud followers his amazing new production, “Sad Machine.”

Using a machine called a Vocaloid, which recreates the human vocals in a synthesized form, Robinson was able to create a duet between himself and the machine.

The result? Sort of a futuristic love story.

“Sad Machine” premiered on The Fader and when asked about the song, Robinson said:

I’d used Vocaloid as the vocals for several of the songs on Worlds, and then the idea of a duet between a lonely robot girl and the human boy who encounters her occurred to me. I didn’t have much time before I had to turn in the entire album, so I just sang the male parts. I wanted something that felt distantly sad, a little cute, surreal, hopeful, and maybe somehow evocative of fiction?
