Algorithmic Performance, Machine Agency, Archival Practices, Data Coloniality 

In this participatory audiovisual performance, visitors are encouraged to readout various English language texts into a microphone. A machine learning model tries to classify and categorize their voice, tonality and accent in an attempt to produce a speech profile for every word uttered. At the same time, the performer(s) hacks into various inaccessible online archives and databases in an attempt to retrieve accent and speech related materials. A live audiovisual composition created through archival and machine learning imaginations.
DataTone is supported by the Creative Industries NL and the first iteration was performed with Budhaditya Chattopadhyay

With a focus on staging encounters with algorithms,DataTone wants to bring forward the creative agency of machine learning algorithms outside the realm of data extraction, colonialism, capital accumulation, automation, control and bias.
