Giving Voice to Synthetic Sonics
An online workshop exploring themes of protest (in the widest sense) with the sonics of synthesised voices, in collaboration with Anja Borowicz Richardson.
As a group we collectively created an improvised synthetic choir, with readily available voice synthesis tools. Additionally, through discussion we explored ideas of plurality - of voices and that of perspectives, to question collective ways of knowing (i.e. a chorus) versus hegemony that systems like Google Alexa provide.
