What Is Critical Karaoke?


Critical Karaoke was first introduced by Joshua Clover at the Experience Music Project annual Pop Conference.

The conceit was this: you get to talk about a single song, for the length of the song…while the song is playing behind you.

The CK format has been replicated in different forums since, including at both the 2013 EMP-Los Angeles Pop Conference and the national 2014 Pop Conference. The organizers and participants have graciously given JPMS permission to publish several of the performances from these panels.
