Our surroundings do not often sonically correspond to our mood. In big cities acoustic aggression from either mechanical or human agents is almost unavoidable. The project aims to build a metaphor of this disturbing aspect of our reality through the realisation of a malfunctioning home IoT-controlled environment, which reacts to the emotional content of a person's voice in surprising and not necessarily tuned ways. Could this be a soft simulation of a future dystopian human-machine sonic relationship? A model will be trained on a database of human and non-human voices, while the possibilities offered by the IoT will be used to control household appliances. A website will offer visitors the opportunity to stimulate an inappropriate sonic response to the emotional content of their own voices.
