It has been a little while since we’ve posted and we have a lot to share! Recently, a few students with interest in this project joined the research group on voice assistants and experimental performance. The following students have backgrounds in music composition, experimental percussion and digital arts and experimental media:
While Bonnie and Afroditi were attending and presenting at the Transmediale Festival (a festival and year-round project that draws out new connections between art, culture, and technology), Audrey and the team got together for a brainstorming session in an attempt to identify the trajectory and next steps for this project. We felt like we came up with some great initial ideas and concepts, here are a few: voice assistants and language manipulation, sound manipulation using digital audio workstations, voice assistants within the context of defined spaces.
The ideas are flowing and we’ve got momentum! Can’t wait to share more soon!
