Auto-Tune Research (with Jeff Bartell) (2011)

Auto-Tune: Altering the Musical Landscape is a research inquiry and podcast that explores the conceptual and technological history of Auto-Tune and its implications on contemporary music and culture, focusing on the qualitative phenomena it has engendered.

Digital Voices is an annotated, live DJ mix that serves as an alternative interface to the inquiry. It is 45 minutes spanning the history of the digitized voice, from the first vocoder at Bell Labs to Kanye West.
