Sonic Walker, Public Sound Work, Melbourne, 2017

SEPT 22nd - 29th - SONIC WALKER, If the City Could Speak, Melbourne - Public Sound Work

The City of Melbourne’s 24-hour pedestrian counting system measures the daily activity of pedestrians. Updated hourly, the data captured by thirty-five of the forty sensors installed around Melbourne’s CBD is sonified in real time. What does it mean to have our daily footsteps counted in the urban terrain of a ‘smart city’?

Traced Album Cover, Sonic Pieces, 2017

JULY - NEW ALBUM TRACED on Sonic Pieces

Boomkat review for my new album - In Traced, Guffond takes the textural and spatially sensitive ambient aesthetics of her previous LP, the acclaimed Yellow Bell, into palpably more paranoid and unnerving headspaces, using her filigree appreciation of electro-acoustic dynamics to convey that feeling with a subtlety which will surely resonate with anyone aware of digital surveillance technology’s transition from peripheral creep to a near ubiquitous presence.

The Web Never Forgets, SNO, 2017

APRIL - THE WEB NEVER FORGETS - sound installation

Sydney Non Objective (SNO), Sydney

An immersive sound installation that exposes the proliferation of ubiquitous online surveillance via the real time sonification of internet tracking cookies. Named after the computer science term “magic cookie” internet cookies are commonly used for data profiling by advertising, corporations and governments, by placing a small file on the user’s computer. The relative invisibility of digital surveillance, and the proliferation of consumer modes of online surveillance has both intensified and rendered ambivalent our relationships to being surveyed. Sound provides a means for listening back to some of the imperceivable surveillance infrastructures that monitor our habitual online browsing.

DECEMBER - DEGRADATION LOOPS

55 Sydenham Rd, Marrickville, Sydney

A 16 day composition that gradually and completely bit crushes my 2015 Yellow Bell album. A process of sonic destruction unfolds in response to a group show where visual artists (Alex Gawronski, Jelena Telecki) destroy and reassemble their work, to create new work, and question the dominance of commercial imperatives within art.

Exhibition, Untold Stories, Berlin 2016

AUGUST - UNTOLD STORIES, Quiet Cue, Berlin

Composition for WiFi, GPS, Architecture, Furniture and People, explores sound as a method of socio-political investigation. Working with the properties of sound as a vibrational force WiFi and GPS networks are sonified into sub-frequencies specifically tuned to the room, thereby causing architecture and furniture to vibrate. By translating humanly imperceptible networks into the medium of sonic vibration, we are reminded that every object and every being, contains resonate frequencies that can be activated through sound.

Simultaneously used for global communication and surveillance, WiFi and GPS infrastructures inform our everyday experience by expanding our urban boundaries to the geopolitical and information channels of the world. Providing an audible presence for these otherwise intangible infrastructures allows for a direct sensory experience that encourages listening as a mode of examination.

Performance/Installation, Berlin 2016

16th JUNE - FILTER V, SPEKTRUM, Berlin

An initiative of ZONA DYNAMIC, the FILTER - Sound Art Series is an edition of temporary collaborations between 2-3 artists focusing on conceptual, context-reflective artworks that intervene in temporary spaces.

FILTER V is an experiment dealing with the power dynamics inherent to surveillance states across both physical and digital domains. Focusing on the intangibility of monitoring and capture infrastructures embedded within the networks we connect to and communicate with everyday - how does this affect collective movement?

Realised as a participative performance and sound installation in collaboration with Liat Berdugo, Eliza Goldox and Holger Heissmeyer. In the guise of aerobic instructions, collective movement is tracked and the body is used as a point of analysis. Liat Berdugo's Unpatentable Multitouch Aerobics incorporates everyday gestures such as zooming, swiping and flicking, that our technological devices have taught us to do, commenting on the corporate reach into our homes, psyches and bodies. The captured data is translated into sonic rhythms, enabling a listening mode of examination and creating an ongoing ritual and soundscape.
