sbornia (1996-1999)

Thursday, December 30th, 1999

“che, qué sbornia tengo, hermano. yo me voy a casa.”

a network of sound transforming computer nodes. an installation for a multiple space.

each computer records fragments of the sound around itself, processes them using diverse destructive audio transformations, and sends them to random peers in the network for playback, thus creating confusion in the sound environment.

sbornia means drunkennes in buenos aires slang.

a prototype was shown during ‘palacio tomado’ in august 1998. the project was put in stand-by —but not frozen— in 1999.
