Rully Shabara

Indonesian artist Rully Shabara (Senyawa) in collaboration with a special lineup of Melbourne/Naarm based musicians and vocal artists for an evening of sound experiments and presentations with and against Rully’s Artificial Intelligence XhabaraBot Voice Machine.

‘The exploration of human voice in terms of singing and vocalisation, even by the greatest singers would still have limitations. Physical design, organs, and age are factors that preset the limits of human voice exploration.’

Since 2022, Rully has been busy tinkering with ways to push and workaround these limitations.

'The first stage of this experiment is to prove that the human voice actually has superior sound potential if it is not dependent or bound to its parent instrument; the body. Without the body, it does not require pauses to breathe or to think. It is also not affected by mood or physical instability that weakens over time. Therefore, first and foremost, our voice must be separated from the body by turning it into data.’ – Rully Shabara
