a Constructivist noise event from the boys at “xxxxx”
"Free software isn't just about open applications, it's about exposed and extruded code, and a modular, highly constructivist approach to data; environmental code, physical code, tangible code. Code is data. Data is code. Code bends data. Noise to signal ratio over signal to noise."
"After a brief introduction to their work, including abstract computation in the Californian desert, workshop participants can explore virtual machine tools created by ap including ap0202 and self. Piping data, shifting data, bending data means connectivity as we explore connections in the Unix world and beyond, introducing the highly versatile Pd (Pure Data) environment."
ap, Aymeric, noise luminaries and physical coders from the UK free software art scene lead the workshop into an evening of free noise. Again the physical, again the real. The (new) medium surely isn't the message. Abhorrent concrete noise cancels out the signal to achieve only exposed systematics. Crash JelliedEel.
