Autotuned Irving Weber!

To the extent that there isn’t 100% overlap between our blog readers, and the people who have already seen this passed around on facebook, I just have to post this:

This is the work of John Richard who is the sole proprietor of Bocce Ball Multimedia. While the Autotune meme is probably getting tired, this is just too well done not to enjoy.

And a word on the Irving Weber Iowa City history videos — these are worth tracking down — I think they have them at the Iowa City Public Library. You can learn some Iowa City history from them, but they also work as unique pieces of conceptual art. If Irving Weber hadn’t recorded hours of observations on the Iowa City of bygone days in a deadpan monotone, someone could get an MFA in InterMedia for fabricating them.
