From a Whisper to Machines

"Computer! Phone Home!"

Whether it's the latest jump into augmented reality and artificial intelligence, the voice of your brand, your citizen voice, or the singin', podcastin' voice head-phoned into your ears, voice informs and shapes our experience, often in ways we don't consider.

Join our distinguished panelists for a thoughtful and humorous evening as they offer brief presentations of their expert perspectives on voice and how it shifts perception and reality. What is fake laughter, optimal voice, the voice of community and civic engagement?

Visit the Sonic Arcade featuring: "Voice presented by The Perceptionizer™; “The Shift in Awareness”; and "The Social Media Factory presented by The Reactionizer™". Refreshments (cash bar) will be available in advance of and after the panel.

This is an ASL interpreted event. The interpreters will sign the presentations and discussion, as well as be available over the course of the evening.

"If you have the right voice and the right delivery, you're cocky enough, and you pound down on the punch line, you can say anything and make people laugh maybe three times before they realize you're not telling jokes." – Buddy Hackett
