Directly following the conclusion of her four-night residency at the Shed in New York City, Arca is announcing that her music will serve as the soundtrack for the Museum of Modern Art’s lobby for two years. For this particular New York City showcase, the genre-bending producer is providing a piece she assembled using the Bronze AI engine, a method that gives artists — such as previous, famed user Jai Paul — the ability to create “non-static, generative and augmented music.”

“For 2 years my music will be playing in the lobby of the newly reopened @themuseumofmodernart,” Arca shares via a statement posted to Instagram. “It’s such an honor to be able to compose for an AI that will never make the music play the same way twice – it’s a live transmission forever in mutation.”

Arca’s two-year soundtrack will begin once the Museum of Modern Art reopens on October 21. You can check out Arca’s Instagram post about her forthcoming musical takeover of the MoMA lobby below. For more information on the Bronze AI engine, head on over to the official Bronze AI website.

Back in April of 2018, Arca unveiled an 11-minute composition known as “Fetiche.”

Es un honor haber podido componer para una inteligencia artificial que nunca repetirá mia composiciones de la misma manera- es un flujo siempre cambiante. Investiguen sobre el brillante proyecto https://bronze.ai for more info ——— Thanks to the Parreno studio for trusting me and giving us carte blanche throughout the composition process, it’s amazing to think of how many people that don’t know about my work will have my sounds passing through their body as they pass through the space into the MoMA. Thanks to everyone involved especially @damienqd ! It’s an honor ? The piece is titled Echo (Danny the Street) by Philippe Parreno who was commissioned to produce the work and he asked me to create this entity together with him. I was happy to suggest the word Echo based on the myth of Narcissus and Echo— look into how it unfolds, it’s one of my favorite myths! Thanks Philippe! @themuseumofmodernart ps the mirror vid is me responding to @jordanmatthewolfson mirror tran ce
