Extreme Karaoke

Extreme Karaoke is a karaoke party/performance act held where a computer program automatically takes voice samples of volunteer singers. The music, originally playing a midi synth, gets its notes progressively replaced by the singer's voice sampler, as the background karaoke video changes to an animation of matched close up pictures of the singer - a process making the singing experience a bit more difficult and Extreme, but very engaging and fun.

This project served me as a transition from Internet2 music shows as a one-man-band to a new kind of research around interactive stage devices that allows me to organise social events, with simple rules to play and understand.
