‘Vessel’ is a song co-created between Portrait XO and Rezar in collaboration with open source AI models for audio training. Using both of their vocals as a dataset, the recordings were trained on 2 AI models to create separate instruments and also train both vocals together. Portrait XO’s approach to attempt morphing 2 voices into each other through different methods for this song was praised by Imogen Heap during the AI Song Contest 2021. This song was written and recorded in 2 weeks, and this is a remastered version of the song.
