My Virtual Mermaid (Natural Field Recordings)
By Lichtenberg Syndrom: Lisa Marie Bador (FR/DE)
If the digital world is a sea of information, malicious software and computer viruses are sirens – apparently charming water creatures that are actually terrible monsters that sing sweet, magical songs to lure their victims. This project stands at the crossroads of psychoacoustics, political critique and sound healing. It uses sampling, distortion, and mixing techniques to pose critical questions about our relation to the signals, notifications and alarms that aurally demarcate our digital world.
