Inaugurated as a deep learning application on voice synthesis, appropriated by “deepfake” users to create fake Trumps and Obamas and by artists to explore non-anthropomorphic possibilities, voice cloning is not only a technology but a new cultural and artistic practice. Subverting the relation between voice and subjectivity, voice cloning affects the very notions of embodiment and truth. In the wake of media archeological investigation, this paper explores the epistemic properties of voice cloning analyzing its technical and cultural aspects and comparing them with their ancestors, media messages and outcomes.
