In the spring of 2022, students in my Audio Recording Techniques III course at the University of Oregon recreated Phoebe Bridger’s “Kyoto” from her 2020 album, Punisher, from the ground up. I used our 2022 class song as the foundation for Cyberduck AI’s challenge to use Grimes’ AI voice in a creative context. I uploaded our original vocal into Cyberduck’s web interface to create Grimes’ vocal track. I had to do this in chunks due to size/length limits.
I then remixed our 2022 Phoebe Bridgers’ “Kyoto” cover with AI Grimes’ singing. You can listen below
