Björk has designed a generative rating for the boutique Manhattan lodge Sister Town. The rating is titled Kórsafan. Björk stated in a statement:
“an architectural structure in downtown manhattan available me the hand
in an AI tango and i approved the call, i am warn with curiosity
ready the effects. i available them my choir archives, created about 17
decades that will float as a result of the pinball of synthetic intelligence
by the grid of chicken migrations, clouds, aeroplanes and that voluptuous
matter known as barometer ! hudson valley transpires to be a single of the most
chicken-trafficked deltas on the world, i know this of my individual encounter
…. hope you will enjoy this ! warmth björk”
Björk’s score takes advantage of AI tech from Microsoft to pull a variety of snippets of her favorite choral preparations from her archive. The collaboration was born last spring when the artist, the Hamrahlid Choir, and its director Thorgerdur Ingólfsdóttir, stayed at Sister Metropolis for a thirty day period as they rehearsed and performed a thirty day period-extensive residency at the Lose in Manhattan.
The new rating follows the AI-produced songs Julianna Barwick composed for the resort past year. In Oct 2019, the Museum of Fashionable Art in New York Metropolis utilized a rating Arca wrote applying the Bronze AI engine to soundtrack its lobby.
