Karaoke Deathmatch 100
2007

computer driven multimedia installation with projection, sound and internet kiosk

Artist collaborative M.River & T.Whid face off in the most brutal performance art smack down of the new millennium... Karaoke Deathmatch 100! This alcohol-fueled blood feud features 50 rounds of sing-along fury (taped live over an 8-hour period with hardly any pee breaks).No Carpenters hit too cheesy, no heavy metal lyric too trite for these teleprompter warriors to hurl in a battle to the end. Who will emerge victorious? Only YOU can decide.

final score: M.River: 25 | T.Whid: 23 | Ties: 2 M.River Is The KDM100 Champion!
