Karaoke Ice


Session Title:

  • Zero One Residencies

Presentation Title:

  • Karaoke Ice



  • Imagine an ice cream truck transformed into a mobile karaoke unit, driven by a squirrel cub with a penchant for cheap magic, deployed to spark spontaneous interaction between citizens of Cesar Chavez Plaza. Participants perform for an audience from a stage in the transformed rear of the vehicle, and use a customized karaoke engine to select, sing, and record a song. Free popsicles lure passersby to participate. The resulting mix is one that celebrates the power of music to entice and inflame, as well as the sense of community that can be fostered among strangers trapped in a terrestrial network.
