In 2018, !Mediengruppe Bitnik & Low Jack released an EP edition with three songs specifically written to engage with "Intelligent" Personal Assistants like Amazon Echo and Google Home. The three songs describe the complex relationship we have with the devices increasingly invading our homes: The carefree love that embraces Alexa before the data privacy and surveillance issues outweigh the benefits. The alienation and uncoupling from the allure of remote control and instant gratification.
The anxiety and discomfort around Alexa and other Intelligent Personal Assistants that is Alexiety.
The EP "Alexiety - panke.gallery Edition #002 (2018)" is best streamed on the radio for the enjoyment of smart homes everywhere. Play it loud, so your neighbours devices can hear.
