no one wants to think about the fact that siri's entrance into our lives was a further interfacing between the human and the machine. but here we are. this artificial thing borne of human speech and logic is carried around with us everyday. you can talk and siri will respond but the response is limited. siri sounds real but isn't. this doesn't have to be bad. we are still human and technology is beholden to us for now but the gap closes faster and faster these days. "Of Siri" is a brilliant album. it makes me think about what it means to be human but also what it means to be artificial-to be manufactured to sound human...to sound "real." Claire is my friend and on this release she makes her full fledged debut into the world of electronic composition. it is a funny and moving foray that truly goes somewhere new in free jazz and improvisation.
