Björk’s music as Art

Björk’s music as Art

Are we gonna be lazy or let them stimulate us to be expressive? Are we going to create or destroy? Doesn’t matter if it was fire, the knife, the gun, the atom bomb, tech, or whatever. These things don’t come with humanity or a soul. We have to put it there.” – Björk is talking about the future in a way that only Björk can

Björk, in full Björk Gudmundsdottir (born November 21, 1965, Reykjavík, Iceland) is easily the most famous Icelander in the world. She is widely known for her eccentric outfits and behavior as she is for her voice. Integrating electronic and organic sounds, her music frequently explored the relationship between nature and technology.

Björk has collaborated with Microsoft to create AI-generated music based on on the changing weather patterns and position of the sun. Her arrangements, entitled Kórsafn, have been composed in the last 17 years of her career and now can be heard 24/7 in the lobby of Sister City, a tech-focused hotel in New York City. Among them is the Hamrahlid Choir from Iceland, made up of 50 musicians who sang at the opening of the world tour “Cornucopia” in 2019.

An architectural structure in downtown Manhattan offered me the hand in an AI tango and I accepted the call. I am alert with curiosity waiting the results” …“I offered them my choir archives, written over 17 years that will float through the pinball of artificial intelligence by the grid of bird migrations, clouds, aeroplanes and that voluptuous thing called barometer!” said Björk in a statement.

Using a live camera feed from the sister city roof, the result is an endless string of new variations that creates an all-encompassing mood for guests. The computer vision project train Al to recognize dense and fluffy clouds, snow, rain, clear sky and birds in different lighting and seasons.

The coolest lobby music ever, thanks to Bjork and AI Technology

The association with Bjork could have a huge impact on the music industry but also in other branches of art. The popularity of the singer in the world of contemporary artists will attract the attention of creators to artificial intelligence.
