Live performance at Black Box, UNSWAD, Sydney, utilising the Listening Back Chrome Browser Extension. The Browser Duo browses online to create a soundscape generated by the real time sonification of internet cookies.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Panel discussion with Gudrun Gut, Brooke Olsen, Gail Priest about visibility of women in music and the arts. Hosted by the Goethe Institute.
“Sound, Art and Technology-poiesis” is an artistic praxis course at UNI.K – Studio for Sound Art and Sound Research, Faculty of Music, Berlin University of the Arts. Led by Daisuke Ishida and sound artist Jasmine Guffond during the winter semester 2015/2016. Participants were encouraged to create a work investigating contemporary personal, social and political issues with a special focus on the intangibility of surveillance in the digital domain, through the use of the similarly ephemeral medium of sound.
