Live performance on the audification of data and computer processes
The artistic research project „Computer Signals: Art and Biology in the Age of Digital Experimentation“ by Prof. Hannes Rickli at the University of Arts in Zürich engages with digital data work as audible and experienceable.
On Friday, the 16th of February 2024, at 7:30pm at the Käte Hamburger Kolleg: Cultures of Research (c:o/re), Valentina Vuksic, a transdisciplinary associate of the project, is presenting artistic formats that stem from straightforward audifications of computational processes with little aesthetic consideration taken at first, and yet, took on a double life as musical works outside of their context. The electromagnetic, electric and mechanical recordings stem from the research infrastructure of the biological laboratory at UT Austin by Hans Hofmann and the underwater observatory RemOS in Kongsfjorden, Spitsbergen by Philipp Fischer (Alfred-Wegener-Institut for polar and marine research). The audio material stays unprocessed; it is merely re-arranged and layered. The sonic works set out from digital data generation as part of scientific procedures to take a specific course outlined by a series of sonic extracts.
