A work in progress presentation of the compositional work ‘Server Songs’. ‘Server Songs’ is a multichannel sound installation, a generative choir of real and synthetic voices. Songs from the depths of the servers, songs about life lived on and through the internet.
Part of the ‘Server Songs’ project is experiments with performative database access offering glimpses in to the vast amounts of media stored on public servers, with emphasis on curated personal stories from mainstream internet as well as more esoteric timelines and the othernets.
It is possible to join the database; through conversation and donation. The artist is present at IAC for Immersive Days #2 and would love to talk and record your personal internet story for the archive. A website for the project, where it is possible to get in touch and share stories is now live on www.serversongs.me.
