Bicycle Built For 2,000 [bicyclebuiltfortwothousand.com] is comprised of 2,088 short voice recordings collected via Amazon's Mechanical Turk web service, assembled together to sing the song Daisy Bell. In 1962, the IBM 704 became the first computer to sing, singing the song Daisy Bell.

Online workers were prompted to listen to a short sound clip, then record themselves imitating what they heard. Each person was paid $0.06 for their participation via Amazon's Mechanical Turk web service. The work is accompanied by a visual interface that allows the exploration of the large collection of voices.

Watch the short video documentary below.
