By now, Siri and Alexa have become household names. We share both mundane and sensitive information with them. Have you considered the depth of your relationship with your voice-activated assistant?
Together with French musician Low Jack, !Mediengruppe Bitnik have composed this set of three songs embedded with lyrics that can trigger voice-activated assistants in unexpected ways. Each song attempts to capture the feelings we develop toward Intelligent Personal Assistants, ranging from the instant gratification they bring us to the anxiety or discomfort we might feel about them listening to us.
*The EP is best streamed on the radio for the enjoyment of smart homes everywhere. Play it loud, so your neighbors’ devices can hear.
