Voicebox (2014) invites you to explore the creative possibilities of that most familiar of musical instruments: the human voice. Wearing headphones, speak or sing into one of the microphones to hear your voice affected; your partner on the other side of the table will also hear you. Press the illuminated pads and slide your finger over the trackpad to drastically alter the pitch, tone, and character of the sounds coming out of your mouth. The tabletop spectrogram displays a graphical representation of the music you create.
