Kórsafn by Björk

Singer, songwriter, producer, and creative force majeure, Icelandic artist Björk has opened up her archives to showcase some of her choral arrangements that she’s created over the course of her career. Collaborating with New York’s design-centric Sister City hotel and Microsoft, the result is Kórsafn—an AI-powered composition that builds on the generative soundscape concept that Sister City launched with Julianna Barwick in 2019. In Icelandic, “kór” = “choral,” and “safn” = “archives.”

I designed the Kórsafn’s website, visual system and animation with the great team at We Are Listen, along with partners Sister City and Microsoft. You can hear the composition on the microsite: or swing by the hotel Sister City in NYC. Read more about it at
