an orifice of adventure
Karaoke Ice is a mobile karaoke booth ice cream truck art piece. Also there is a squirrel. Free frozen treats are handed out and once a crowd gathers, the truck transforms into karaoke mode. Everyone loves it! Especially on those long hot summer days it cursed through San Jose and Los Angeles. All the karaoke songs were even remixed to sound like ice cream truck musik. We had T-shirts and everything.
This extended compilation was shot during ISEA 2006 and features more of the team actually singing and more opening night house rocking. I wanted to show the process from card scan to song load and the people who worked on Karaoke Ice actually having fun with it. This cut features clips from performances by Thomas Asmuth, Michael and Lauren Weisert, and myself. Unfortunately the entirety of Kristin O'Friel and Corrie Tse’s performance was missing so I included what I could. Yes, it runs long but the editing decisions were based primarily on nostalgia. This one is for the fans.
Karaoke Ice is a project by Nancy Nowacek, Katie Salen, and Marina Zurkow, in collaboration with, Mike Weisert, John Bruneau, Kristin O'Friel, Corrie Tse, Thomas Asmuth, Owen Premore and Sarah Lowe from Cadre.
