Sora from OpenAI releases its first ever music video

The very first music video made by OpenAI’s upcoming video generator Sora has now been released and is quite bizarre, as expected.

This two-minute and 19-second video features a calm electronic track titled Worldweight by August Kamp. The video is showcased in an unconventional 8:3 aspect ratio and displays surreal scenes of abstract settings.

The video includes imagery of shiny crystals in a woodland and electronic devices placed on a boulder amidst a small lake.

Kamp, who is not only a musician but also a researcher and creative activist, expressed that this artwork represents her deepest feelings and passion.

OpenAI has not disclosed the specific details about how the video was created, providing just a glimpse of their highly anticipated AI video generator, set to launch later this year.

Recently, a few creative professionals were given early access to Sora, leading to some eccentric outcomes.

One of the notable initial videos involves a brief story about a man with a balloon for a head, describing windy days as particularly challenging. This quirky film was produced by the multimedia company Shy Kids from Toronto.

Further experiments included Don Allen III creating a fictional nature documentary about creatures like the girafflamingo, along with fabricated animals such as flying pigs, a whalepus, an eel cat, a bunny armadillo, a horse fly, the reptilianaroo, and a fox crow. Note, however, that horse-flies are indeed real.

Moreover, the versatile artist Paul Trillo pondered on the fate of The Golden Record, a historical artifact narrating Earth’s story curated by Carl Sagan. This record was attached to Voyager 1 and 2 before being sent into space in 1977. By utilizing materials generated by Sora and adding his unique sound design, Trillo visualizes the journey of The Golden Record.

During a recent discussion with the Wall Street Journal, Mira Murati, the former short-lived CEO of OpenAI and current CTO, briefly touched on the new technology.

In the interview, Murati evaded specifics about the training data of Sora, mentioning only that it was constructed using “publicly accessible” data sources.
