Transmit

Transmission acts in liminal zones, sound at either end with nothing but trajectory of signal in between. Permeating through private spaces, fusion of intimacy and distance is the bond that holds virtual collectivity together. Formed in the spirit of transmission is the potential of the listening subject, multiplied through temporary communities of a sonic unconscious. To transmit is to collude with sourceless sensation. Untethered sound evades inscription — wireless bodies, terrestrial phantasms, lost tongues, snatched signals…

Encounter

An encounter with sound is to recognize a series of activated relations that shape its context and opens connection to seemingly incongruous things, face-to-face or P2P. Its mode of behavior is to be in the middle of things, a kind of vapor made perceptible by various infrastructures, you don’t go around it — it goes through you. Community by way of organized frequency, connection by way of affective proximity.

Generate

What desires emerge from systems powered by accrued energy and histories upon which they draw? What is generated from the fissures created by the to and fro of innovation & limitation, function & myth? Tools used to modulate these scenarios generate alliances of sonic territories, compelling unknowable patterns and vectors of activity to emerge.
