NETWORK ENSEMBLE :: Streaming now and back in stock!
The first two critically acclaimed albums by the «crashcore» music project Network Ensemble are available to fully stream for the first time and to purchase on our shop:
Network Ensemble, Selected Network Studies (Rizosfera-Nukfm, SD card, 2017)
Selected Network Studies collects audiovisual experiments with network infrastructures carried out by the Network Ensemble between 2015-17. Each experiment translates network activity captured with DIY WiFi sniffers into sound, text and graphics. Selected Network Studies comes as a 2GB SD card vacuum-sealed in a UV-printed mylar bag, containing 1 hour of video and music.
Network Ensemble, Flash Demons (Mille Plateaux, USB, 2019)
Flash and Demons were live performances by the Network Ensemble, held in 2018 on the 8th and 31st anniversary of respectively the fastest and first market crash triggered by algorithmic trading: Flash Crash (May 6, 2010) and Black Monday (October 19, 1987). Flash was performed at Design Museum, London and Demons at Spektrum, Berlin. Flash Demons collects the two performances, which are introduced by Obsolete Capitalism in an essay entitled “Counter-memory surplus”. The release comes as a limited-edition custom-made silicon 2GB USB, vacuum-sealed in screen-printed sleeve. It contains forty-five minutes of financial algorithmic collapse rendered into music.
The Network Ensemble (Berlin-London) is a crashcore sound project by the Demystification Committee, using custom hardware and software to translate data from communication and financial networks into audiovisual signals. In fall 2021, the debut release of the Demystification Committee, ECHO FX, will be published by Krisis Publishing. ECHO FX is a 20 minute audiovisual performance replaying the events unfolding on June 23, 2016, the night of Brexit referendum. See @dmstfctn for updates on the release (book + digital download).
