Portrait XO (she/they) is an independent researcher and artist who creates musical and visual works with traditional and non-traditional methods. She researches computational creativity and human-machine collaboration, all the while exploring new formats and applications for forward-thinking art and sound.
From a young age, she was inspired by jazz and improv with training in classical piano — but what changed her entire perception of music-making was listening to Radiohead, Bjork and Massive Attack. Now a singer, songwriter, producer and interactive installation artist, she explores different sounds from soulful pop to experimental. She released her debut research-based AI audiovisual album WIRE in December 2022 in Web 3.0 and all traditional formats.
