Flash Demons

Flash Demons

– Network Ensemble

Available
formats:

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. Stream Flash Demons on rizo.stream.


The Network Ensemble 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.

Trading on uncertainty
Decline
Crash
Halt
Resume
Speculation
Relief, anxiety
Delight

Demons:
Augury
Accident
Remember when we held on in the rain
Demons of our own design
Didn't we almost have it all
News jungle
One market
We haven't seen anything yet
Void of rapidity
