Installation “Reverse Karaoke” by Kim Gordon and Jutta Koether

With their installation “Reverse Karaoke”, visual artists and musicians Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth) and Jutta Koether (Texte zur Kunst) invite visitors to make their own music. Starting with a bass track featuring the prerecorded voice of Kim Gordon, anybody can do what they want according to the do-it-yourself principle.
“Reverse Karaoke” is made up of a yurt-type tent, in whose interior a small low-fi recording set-up is installed. Decorated like a small, Bohemian-style oasis with canvas, glitter, wood, velvet and fake fur, the tent also harbours music instruments and recording devices. In keeping with the do-it-yourself philosophy, visitors are encouraged to make music – either alone or together with others – parallel to a vocal track by Kim Gordon. In addition to an instruction video with Kim Gordon and Jutta Koether for making music in the tent, five rubber stamps are provided for CD cover designs. Two CDs are burned of all recordings produced – one is taken along by visitors, while the second remains in the tent throughout the exhibition (for the “Reverse Karaoke” collection) so that other visitors can listen in.
Into the City is supported by Arbeiterkammer Wien.
