Continuing our research-led design work into the entangled relationship between the entertainment industry and biometric data collection and artificial intelligence, this time inspired by a conspiracy theory which asserts that authoritarian, as well as democratic, governments uses Karaoke to collect user’s voice print.

This interactive Karaoke for Z33s Format is the result of nine months of R&D with voice capture technologies and their AI interfaces, interviews with voice analysts who are developing commercial applications for emotion recognition, and ethnographic research into the social history of Karaoke across the world.
