– Android App

In this performance, the children’s game "Chinese Whispers" (also known as "telephone", "gossip", "operator", "messenger game", "Stille Post") - in which a message is whispered from one person to another - is played by smartphones using the default speech recognition (Google) and speech synthesis software of the devices operating system.

"Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do. I'm half crazy all for the love of you."

"Daisy Bell" is the first song performed by computer speech synthesis (IBM in 1961), as later referenced in Stanley Kubricks 2001: A Space Odyssey.
