Bicycle Built For 2,000 is a fantastic crowd-sourced performance piece composed of 2,088 different voice recordings from around the world. Volunteers were paid $0.06 to sing a short bit of the song “Daisy Bell”, which was made famous as the first ever example of musical speech synthesis. The results were synced up into a disjointed, but intriguing composition. Experience it here, and watch the video below for a detailed background of the project.
