Mutant Data Orchestra

28 March 2003, 20:00
Artist: Mark Bain
John Bain - modified electronics
Mark Bain - architectural acoustics, sound processing

The Mutant Data Orchestra, consisting of the twin brothers John and Mark Bain, rewires the products of our digital society to expose the hidden agents within. Through live circuit modification of digital answering machines, cheap digital toys and sound instruments the performers manipulate the data pathways and exert on their sound production without the use of a conventional software interface. These sonic generators produce shards of noise with auto-improvised stabs of high pitched bell and cello tones. At times one can hear the intermeshing of data as a liquid waterfall of sonic information.
