A karaoke party with a computer that automatically takes voice samples and pictures of target matched notes. The music originally playing a midi synth gets replaced progressively by the singer's voice sampler and the background karaoke video becomes an animation of matched closeup pictures of the singer while recorded making the experience a bit Xtreme.
Sometimes people participating in the karaoke leave the microphone after the first minute, creating an autonomous remix made with the singer's new generated sampler. A unique experience of some abandoned interaction that can exist as a living art piece, sometimes beautiful, sometimes horrible but always respected as the social codes that karaoke brings into play.
This was a project that served me as a transition from Internet2 solo shows to a more crucial interactive stage device, allowing me to share authorship in a social event with easy participation with simple rules to play and understand.
