EASTN-DC Residency at ZKM 

14/09-08/10/2020 Karlsruhe (Germany) FEELS LIKE HOME

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.

More details soon.
