In this two day workshop we will use computer scripts, karaoke files and online translation/pronunciation services to reinterpret and re-appropriate pop songs and make computers sing our social media streams.

This workshop is based on projects by Thiago Hersan and Maximilian Lawrence who have been researching and experimenting with different kinds of voice synthesis and conceptual mashup techniques. Development support for this has been provided by The Hacktory in Philadelphia and Impakt in Utrecht.
