    Static Chatter – Sound Installation

    As part of Aalto Univeristy’s Pikku-√Ą√§niAalto festival, I created a sound installation at the Aalto Radio Observatory with Bespoke Realities Collective. Bespoke Realities Collective is Ava Grayson, Chris Bradburry, and myself. For the installation we experimented with sonifying signals in the 2 GHz domain, intercepting bluetooth and Wi-Fi signals before synthesizing them and projecting the…

    What is Wi-Fi, ontologically speaking? The Gigahertz electromagnetic spectrum exists irrespective of human or technological intervention, but when the space is co-opted by human and technical actors, does it fundamentally change? What about the human and technical actors? When an assemblage of electronic components are organized in a way meant to transfer information along this…

    Wi-Fi Sonification: the progenitor of lossyd

    “lossyd”, pronounced la-see-dee, is a speculative daemon that facilitates interactions between human and non-human entities. It is centered around the 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi Band and the data streams that traverse it. Lossyd was designed as a proof of concept using an RTL-SDR dongle and a bipolar antenna, about 6 cm long, to process recordings from…

    This project explores the 2.4 GHz frequency spectrum through sound and touch. By sending potentiometer data from their fingers to SuperCollider, the wearer can control the sound. The potentiometer is a commonly used tool in musical applications and can easily be integrated into any code or patch with a few adjustments. The servo motors provide…
