Korridoren at Sandvikens Konsthall

For the past months I’ve been working on an exhibition called Korridoren for Sandvikens Konsthall. It’s about goats, virtual reality and immersive landscapes. Made by me and Björn Bengtsson together with Kirke Meng, Bob Nimbe and captain Stefan Lindquist.

The opening is on December 9th and it will be on display until January 14th.

Music as Recordings = Boring?

I talked to Elsa Ferreira who wrote a post about Algorave where me, Jacob Remin and the robot did a performance a few weeks back. I explained a bit about how the remixes on Floptrik could be “eternal remixes”, and then I got started on how boring it is that almost all digital music in the end gets released as boring recordings, stripped of all that juicy archeological data. I’ve released a lot of music as data rather than recordings, and it seems like the way of the future. Especially now, soon, when the bots can take all that data, analyze it, and commodify your creativity! Hooray!
