Session Objective

On the Wire is a performance of music/sound made entirely by the network - a combination of live and pre-recorded sounds received via a physical 'wiretap' of an internet connection in both send and receive directions. On the Wire makes audible the rhythms inherent in the act of sending and receiving using network protocols, and allows the audience to immerse themselves in the spatial and temporal dimensions of the network through sound. For Our Networks, this work will include the sounds of decentralized protocols (IPFS, Dat...)

Material and Technical Requirements

A pair of PA speakers, a projector, power board and a table.

Presenter Bio

Adam McFillin is an artist engaged in producing works that investigate power and its presence in the protocols and structures of communications networks. By making signals, packets and protocological rhythms audible or visible, he aims to expose the materiality of the digital network and evade the abstractions that exist between user and machine.
