"Wolfgang von Kempelen (well known for 'The Turk', a chess-playing automaton described in Poe´s 'Maelzel's Chess Player') spent twenty years of his life working on a speaking machine, an attempt to produce human speech by machine, finishing his work in 1791.

Based on current voice synthesis technology, 'Kempelen´s Lesson (On Voice And Tape)' deals with the physiology of speech production, experimental phonetics as a science, and the spirit of mechanical ingenuity of 18th century.

As Berkeley claimed, this is: 'ghosts of departed quantities'.

This work is part of the ongoing project 'Geotraumatic Evacuation of The Voice'."
