Giulia Vismara (IT)

Browser Ensemble
Jasmine Guffond (AU/DE), Jessica Ekomane (FR/DE), Felicity Magnan (AU/DE)
The Browser Ensemble literally browse online, utilising the Listening Back browser plug-in to translate internet cookies in sound. Named after the computer science term “magic cookie” internet cookies are commonly used for data profiling by advertising, corporations and governments, by placing a small file on the user’s computer. The relative invisibility of digital surveillance, and the proliferation of capitalist modes of online surveillance has both intensified and rendered ambivalent our relationships to being surveyed. Sound will provide a means for listening back to some of the imperceivable surveillance infrastructures that form our habitual online browsing.

Du Champ (IT/DE)
Du Champ is an Italian scientist, musician and curator based in Berlin and focused on drone. Drone is related to a precise childhood memory: the sound of the hair dryer, which her mother used to fix her hair. Her first solo album “NAR” was released in 2013 with Boring Machines. In 2014 Idiosyncratics released a split tape and her new work will be released on tape by Full Body Massage records. soundcloud.com/duchamp-1
