For this final, special edition of VOICE Registers, Research Service—collaborators Avi Alpert, Mashinka Firunts, and Danny Snelson—presents “Teleconference.”

"Teleconference" is a research initiative investigating the voice as both concept and vibration. It was developed by Research Service in collaboration with the following participants: Charles Bernstein, Jeanne Dreskin, Roksana Filipowska, Becket Flannery, Cassandra Gillig, Mark Johnson, Alexi Kukuljevic, Steve McLaughlin, Joe Milutis, Rit Premnath, Jean-Michel Rabaté, Paul Salveson, and Kaegan Sparks. 

Interviewees were called by three robotic avatars of Research Service members. These avatars posed a series of preprogrammed questions both to the group as a whole and to specific subjects. The results have been edited and collated here.

"Teleconference" features a hidden bonus track by Charles Bernstein; a musical interlude by Joe Tossini, courtesy of Mark Johnson; a live musical performance by Joe Milutis; and a sampled soundtrack by Richard Rossmini from AT&T’s 1974 wordless documentary, "The Hello Machine."

About Research Service: “critical engagements with discrete subjects on assignment.”

Research Service is the collaborative endeavor of Mashinka Firunts, Avi Alpert, and Danny Snelson. It creates events that blend scholarly investigation, performance making, and creative writing. Research Service’s work goes against the unspoken assumption that intellectual labor has reached its formal perfection in the standard lecture, wherein the only progress occurs in contentual innovations. Its projects seek innovation in the movement between form and content, and propose that research is as much a question of aesthetic inquiry as abstract thought. To these ends, Research Service crafts unique lecture-performances for each concept with which it is confronted.

Research Service’s practice also stresses the communal nature of knowledge production. As such, it seeks to position audiences as nodes within the event-structure, creating a heightened affective situation for the sharing of conceptual labor.

Hello beautiful internet,
For the first major step in my transition I am planning on getting laser hair removal. I am really excited about doing this, but I am (perpetually) short on funds. Here’s where you come in. For $10, I will write you an epistolary poem (a poem in the form of a letter) addressed to DEAR HAIRLESS [YOUR NAME OR YOUR MOM’S NAME OR YOUR FAVORITE SUBJECT FOR A POEM OR ANYTHING REALLY THAT YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO WRITE A POEM FOR]. I will email you this poem. I would love to do something fancy like handwrite it on a neat card and mail it to you, but honestly, I know myself, and I know what kind of promises I can keep and what kind I can’t. Emailing I can do. Mail? *makes wiggly hand gesture accompanied by ehhhhhhh sound*
If you aren’t familiar with my poetry, you can see an example of me reading one of my epistolary poems here or to read text, you can click the links on my porfolio site here.
SO. Here is the link to buy a poem. Be sure to specify your name, or else who or what I am addressing the poem to and if you would like the poem sent to an email other than your paypal email, specify that in the same box. All poems will be delivered within one week, unless something crazy happens.
All money will be used for laser hair removal. If I by some act of god end up with more money than I need for that then the money will be used for future transition-related expenses, and if I get really desperate moneywise, to feed myself.
Love,
Sara <3

Hi everyone! Quick update on this project.
1) I am still selling poems! 2) I got a lot more than I expected. The 1 week turnaround was a bit ambitious. I will get to your poem if I haven’t yet. The turnaround will be quicker once I get through the initial flood of purchases.3) Thank you thank you so much!!!!! I’ve raised over $350 and have covered the first couple sessions for sure. I’m not sure how many I will need so I’m going to keep this going but thank you all so much. You are amazing.


Here’s mines:

Dear Hairless Roshan,

You remind me of a dream I had
where I saw a man in the sky.
He was too far away to make out
anything but legs, arms, head.
The sun was at his back, &
the shadow he made fell 
perfectly on my own body. 
He was shaped like me, but smaller.
There were birds in the distance.
I looked at the man, trying to find
his eyes.

At work that day I found a lock
in a drawer & kept it.
On the way home I drove to a 
hotel I had never been to & sat 
there, in my car, watching the sun 
sink over the roof like nothing 
was wrong.

Hairless, let me know if you’ve heard 
this one. Two dogs live together
in a house with two people whose
names they don’t know.
They keep living there until they die.
When the dogs die their owners
bury them in the yard.
When the dogs die their owners
buy two new dogs
from a place that sells 
living animals that is next
to a place that sells parts
from dead ones.
I am the third dog and you
are one of the owners.
Thank you for buying me.

Love,
Sara

x-men story in which the mutant population is decimated by institutionalized wealth theft and housing discrimination over the course of hundreds of years

very casually reading Chelsea Hodson&#8217;s Pity The Animal

very casually reading Chelsea Hodson’s Pity The Animal

I really enjoyed Marè Odomo’s Internet Comics 2. It’s very short but fun to read and re-read.  Marè turns some of the slippery, ghostly interactions that are part of our perpetual lives on the internet into hazy, whispered half memories. This comic feels lonely and nostalgic and funny, but the nostalgia is for locations and identities that are placeless and ephemeral. Love this.
