A Digital Vinyl release including high quality sound file of the fifth single of Portrait XOs debut AI Album, AI generated artwork, as well as AI-lyric-art.
TRACK 5 - BASIC QUEST
"Another AI-generated clip ‘basic quest’ inspired this song written about the disconnections between humans living in our highly digital lifestyle. Living in the era where too much social media proves to cause depression and anxieties, it feels like a basic quest to get to know people as our lives have become even more digitized due to the pandemic and social distancing." - Portrait XO
Portrait XO’s debut AI album WIRE explores the emotive inspiration of writing with an 'other self’ “Each track title of this album is named after AI generated audio clips with lyrics and melodies that inspired each song. Each song prompted long contemplations about what it means to be a human co-creating with AI that generates another version of myself this way. I feel like I’ve grown a new relationship with myself through the lens of AI that keeps pushing my boundaries of whatever I thought I knew about myself, technology, and how we relate to each other. In my constant states of confusion, I’m trying to make sense of it all by sonifying the dance between art and technology.” – PORTRAIT XO
