As an attempt of a binary representation of complex organic sounds – noise, language, and music – the installation is programmed to constantly search the radio spectrum and algorithmically analyze it. The received sounds are recreated with clicks and noises made by 64 electromechanical relays. This process of sonic reduction and rasterization produces a copy still carrying some of the original information of the sound (rhythms, densities, and timbres), but which is vague enough to become properly re-understood. The piece challenges the loss of meaning in digital transformations, which often leads to bizarre interpretations and misunderstandings in our society.

Developed at and with Avatar Centre of the Cooperative Méduse in Quebec (CA), in the framework of a residency by Pépinières européennes and the Conseil des arts et des Lettres du Québec.Many thanks to LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE.
