Holly Herndon: IP
Holly Herndon, Holly+ and the Philomela Choir at the House of Dance
Holly Herndon experiments with machine learning technologies with an emphasis on congregation and the human voice. She believes these tools will significantly alter the ways in which we make and experience art in the next decade, allowing for anyone to perform as others in a process she defines as “Identity Play” (IP).
IP is the first of a new series of works focused on these techniques for performance. Vocalists will adopt the voices of others and live instruments will mutate beyond their associated sounds. The local Helsinki Philomela Choir and the audience will be led through call and response song.
