Uniquely designed and limited edition USB Drive of Network Ensembles "Flash / Demons" release. The release includes an hour of music and an essay by Obsolete Capitalism.



Flash and Demons are sound performances executed by the Network Ensemble at precise times: 8 and 31 years after the symbolic stock market accidents of 6 May 2010 and 19 October 1987. Popularly known as Flash Crash and Black Monday, these are, respectively, the fastest and the first stock market crashes triggered by computers.

The Network Ensemble faces up to these accidents as an entry point to the stream of algorithmic-induced noise affecting money and its survival network. Stock markets are an important node within this network.

Trading on stock markets was once a person to person activity, then person to phone and eventually terminal to terminal. Now, software speaks to software as the living are abandoned in favour of the void of rapidity. To begin grasping the pressure, acceleration and saturation found in such networks, the sounds of Flash and Demons are generated with software and hardware built by the Network Ensemble and able to translate a variety of network and financial data into sound signals, live.

??????'???'???'???'? and ??????'???'???'???'???'? are live performances executed by the Network Ensemble at precise times: 8 and 31 years after the symbolic stock market accidents of 6 May 2010 and 19 October 1987. Popularly known as Flash Crash and Black Monday, these are, respectively, the fastest and the first stock market crashes triggered by computers, unique entry points into the stream of algorithmic-induced noise affecting money and its survival network.

Stock markets are an important node within this network. Trading on them was once a person to person activity, then person to phone and eventually terminal to terminal. Now, software speaks to software as the living are abandoned in favour of the void of rapidity. To begin grasping the pressure, acceleration and saturation found in such networks, the sounds of ??????'???'???'???'? and ??????'???'???'???'???'? are generated with software and hardware built by the artist and able to translate a variety of network and financial data into sound signals. Mixed with these sounds are field recordings from relevant locations and found news commentary.

??????'???'???'???'? was performed on May 6, 2018 at London???s Design Museum as part of Alt-Age. It is a sonification of data obtained from a wireless local network, collected from the original location and in the same time-span of the trading activity that triggered the accident of May 6, 2010 exactly eight years earlier; and a sonification of trading data from the New York and Chicago stock exchanges on the day of the crash. This is mixed with historical commentary from trading pits and news outlets, as well as field recordings from the riotous streets of Athens.

??????'???'???'???'???'? was performed on 19 October 2018 at Berlin???s Spektrum as part of Radical Networks 2018. It is a sonification of New York Stock Exchange trading data from 19 October 1987, extracted from a found Report of the Presidential Task Force on Market Mechanisms and re-enacted exactly 31 years after the events. This is mixed with historical news commentary. The original performance (youtu.be/WsXmP9Vsx3U) featured live imagery of the New York Stock Exchange, transmitted by a human proxy to Berlin???s Spektrum via video-call.
