Sadie Siegel

Sadie SiegelAs a form of gathering, Karaoke both encourages and restricts expression by following the templates of popular songs performed in semi-private settings. This installation is an attempt to create a sort of pop-music open score partly aimed at improvisation, partly at re-enacting and exploding a set of social conventions. Guests will be familiar with the format (Karaoke) but will be asked to confront a catalog of unknown songs written specifically for the event. Most people have probably sung Karaoke, or watched someone while shuddering in amusement. In the case of Karaoke Roulette, a “correct” way to perform is eliminated, increasing the potential for guests to impress onlookers with their ability to interpret unknown but familiar songs.

SoundWalk is on October 5th, 2013. RSVP on Facebook. This will be the 10th and final annual event.
