  • Lawrence Abu Hamdan Interview
    http://www.ibraaz.org/interviews/21

    I remember hearing Adams and McGuiness as dubbed characters, people who were always removed from their voice. They were dubbed because Margaret Thatcher said that no direct statements of Sinn Féin could be broadcast. But the media found this loophole, where it could interview Gerry Adams, take the sound off and dub him with an actor. I was really interested in that because some of the tracks from the archive are interviews with some of the actors doing those dubbings and they all explain a very different strategy of political agency. Some of them decided to represent Gerry Adams as a flat text, just to make it as clear as possible and avoid acting upon the censorship in that way; others wanted to embody Gerry Adams, with a Northern Irish accent to keep it connected to nationalism; and others wanted to perform the absurdity of the whole process, so they purposefully did a very bad lip-synching job so that the audience understood that they were both watching an interview with Gerry Adams and the whole absurd process of censorship.

    http://rhizome.org/editorial/2012/aug/8/when-machines-speak/


    Once the true voice of the machine had entered the public consciousness, it’s place and form in fictional portrayal would never be the same. After that day in 1939, we knew specifically how inhuman machined speech should sound. As the years pass beyond 1939, and we see advancements in speech synthesis, eventually leading to the first speaking computers. As technologies bring realities into being, they dictate the boundaries of what must be imagined. By 1961 the first speaking and singing computer, the IBM 704 has emerged. The circuitry that afforded the IBM machine to sing was a form of Vocoder technology.

    The tone test procedure was always the same -artists signed to Edison’s record company performed for free, accompanied by their recorded voices emitting form the bell of a Diamond Disc Phonograph- and the goal was always the same: to prove that the Edison Diamond Disc Phonograph had reached the apex of audio perfection, by fooling listeners into thinking they were hearing the real thing.
    (…) Anna Case, an opera singer and Edison recording artist who performed at the most famous tone test, at Carnegie Hall in 1920, is generally credited with lanuching the tone-test concept (…) “I remember I stood right by the machine,” Case said. “The audience was there, and there was nobody on stage with me. The machine played and I sang with it. Of course, if I had sung loud, it would have been louder than the machine, but I gave my voice the same quality as the machine so they couldn’t tell.” (…) The phonograph had begun as a means to document a musical performance, to offer a representation of the “real,”, but Edison was telling the world that this equation no longer held. From now on, recordings would not sound like the world; the world would sound like recordings.

    Besides how could you remember everybody? Eyes, walk, voice. Well, the voice, yes: gramophone. Have a gramophone in every grave or keep it in the house. After dinner on a Sunday.

Otherwise you couldn’t remember the face after fifteen years, say.

  • Vox Humana
    http://www.organstops.org/v/VoxHumana.html

    The Vox Humana is one of the oldest organ stops, dating back at least as far as the late 1500’s. (…) The tone of the Vox Humana is not particulary unique; other Regals produce similar sounds. Its name, however, establishes a tonal goal which has caused countless critics to write it off as unsuccessful or even laughable. While organ builders have tried for half a millenium to imitate the human voice, the most successful attempts only manage to approximate the sound of a male chorus singing in the distance.

    I was watching a demonstration of a new technology, and someone came up and said something in their synthesized voice, and then someone else came up,” Patel says.

    Both spoke in the same voice — Perfect Paul’s. Then a third person arrived, and another.

    “It was the same voice saying different things,” says Patel. “And sometimes they were saying the same phrase, but off by a few seconds … so it felt like it was this echo going on. It was just a strange thing.”

    Standing there, in the middle of all these radically different people with the exact same voice, Patel had an idea: Isn’t there something we can do to make these voices more individuated?

    While the deconstructive potential of technology is inarguably powerful, I think that practises of vocal manipulation today are reflexive of something more complex than the type of hybridity offered by cyborgs. The menacing anonymity of The Knife feels more like a product of the deep web, voices scrambled and passed through proxy servers, than a utopian techno-fusion. They maintain the noisiness of spam attacks and pornographic sidebars that put to rest any claims that the digital is genderless, singing in new encoded and viral tongues.
